In the heraldic tradition, every shoulder sleeve insignia symbolizes the organization's missions. The green pentagon border represents ARFORCYBER's role as a land-based organization, while the inner white border signifies the containment of the threats against the cyberspace infrastructure. The design's black background represents the darkness of space, the unit's area of operations. The web or mesh design which surrounds the globe symbolizes "the shifting electronic energy of the cyberspace environment." The terrestrial globe has two meanings. First it indicates the global electronic reach of ARFORCYBER. Second, the division of the globe from light to dark signifies ARFORCYBER's 24/7/365 op tempo and the interaction of its cyber responsibilities. Three spears, at the forefront of the design, represent the three specific missions of computer network operations - attack, defend and exploit. The lightning bolt which crosses these spears illustrates the ability and swiftness to strike anywhere.
The Department of the Army announced today that Maj. Gen. Rhett A. Hernandez assumed command of U.S. Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) during a ceremony held at Fort Belvoir, Va.
Army Cyber Command is the Army's service component to U.S. Cyber Command, a sub-unified command under U.S. Strategic Command. Army Cyber Command's mission is to plan, coordinate, integrate, synchronize, direct, and conduct network operations and defense of all Army networks. When directed, ARCYBER will conduct cyberspace operations in support of full spectrum operations to ensure U.S. and allied freedom of action in cyberspace, and to deny the same to adversaries.
