The U.S. Cyber Command has issued a new strategy that seeks to help the command achieve and maintain superiority in the cyber space domain, the Lawfare blog reported Friday.

Cybercom’s “Command Vision” supports the National Defense Strategy unveiled by the Defense Department in January and aims to counter cyber threats posed by adversaries.

The document details five imperatives that Cybercom needs to implement in order to maintain its competitive edge in cyber space and one of those is to explore emerging technologies to ensure overmatch of adversary capabilities.

The other four imperatives call for the command to build up cyber advantages to improve operations across all domains; develop information advantages to back operational outcomes by enhancing information warfare options; facilitate agility and speed for cyber operations in investments and policy guidance; and expand partnerships with the private sector, other agencies and allies.

The guidance mentions diplomatic risk and the use of a “high-demand, low-density maneuver force” as the two primary risks.

The command will work to mitigate these risks through efforts that seek to boost the resiliency of DoD platforms against threats and collaboration with allies and coalition partners.

The document cites the Functional Campaign Plan for Cyberspaceoperations and the plan’s role in the implementation of the command’s vision.
