Volume 4, Issue 1 (2019) Command and Control of Cyberspace OperationsAs cyberspace is significantly different from the physical domain in the dimensions of time and space, it presents a much more dynamic and complex operational environment for military operations. This complexity may require the military to examine its long-held doctrine for command and control (C2) and decision-making. The challenges facing modern militaries as they adapt to operations in cyberspace include a nascent understanding of the domain and its characteristics; the complex network of participants responsible for the establishment and sustainment of cyberspace; and insufficient strategies to implement agile C2 and decision-making in the face of the complex dynamics presented by this domain. In 2015, the Commander of United States Cyber Command stated, “Our traditional command and control and organizational constructs do not enable the speed and agility required to keep pace with change in the cyber domain”. This issue seeks to present research and analysis of ideas for command and control and organizational constructs that may enable the speed and agility required to keep pace with change in the cyber domain.
