Captain Doug Powers assumes command of Navy Cyber Defense Operations Command
Captain Douglas A. Powers relieved Captain Alan F. Kukulies as Commanding Officer of Navy Cyber Defense Operations Command (NCDOC) on 9 August 2013.
Kukulies, who assumed command of Navy Cyber Defense Operations Command July 22, 2011,led the command through the complex and challenging planning for a successful move from JEBLCFS, Virginia Beach, Va., to the Global Network Operations and Security Center in Suffolk, Va., scheduled for late 2013.
"It truly has been a privilege to serve with the professional men and women of the NCDOC team. Their commitment to our mission and to our nation will remain with me as a memorable source of pride," said Kukulies, reflecting on his time at NCDOC.
NCDOC is responsible for around the clock protection of the Navy's computer networks. It evolved from the Navy Computer Incident Response Team which was established in January 1996 as part of the Fleet Information Warfare Center. NCDOC was commissioned as an Echelon IV command under Naval Network Warfare Command in January 2006, and moved under Fleet Cyber Command in 2011.
