The United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) Directorate of Operations (J3) establishes and provides cyber warfare capabilities to meet both deterrent and defensive National Security objectives. The J3 optimizes planning, integration, coordination, execution and force management of the cyber warfare mission in support of (ISO) the Joint warfighter. The J3 provides situational awareness of adversary attack opportunities and exercises operational and tactical control of cyber forces and capabilities, as directed. Currently, the J3 is organizationally divided into a Current Operations and Future Operations construct. Current Operations encompasses operating and defending the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Network (DODIN) and includes the Fires & Effects Division, which manages both the Joint Fires Process and the Joint Targeting Cycle and is responsible for publishing a daily Cyberspace Tasking Order (CTO) via the USCYBERCOM Command and Control (C2) portal. Future Operations spans planning for a range of potential activities from those impacting DoD information networks to those with regional and/or global implications. USCYBERCOM operates in a dynamic and changing environment and must remain flexible to achieve its mission.
