The US Cyber Command has achieved full operational capability (FOC) after completing critical tasks to ensure it was capable of accomplishing its mission, the US Department of Defense has said.

The critical FOC tasks include establishing a joint operations centre and transitioning personnel and functions from the joint task force for global network operations and the joint functional component command for network warfare.

The enduring tasks will include developing the workforce, providing support to the combatant commanders, and efforts to continue growing capacity and capability.

US Cyber Command is a sub-unified command working under the US Strategic Command and is responsible for directing activities to operate and defend DoD networks.
