Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO)


DCO provides critical capabilities that preserve a commander’s ability to use friendly cyberspace capabilities and protect data, networks, net-centric capabilities and other designated systems in all operating environments and conditions. Specifically, DCO protects against, detects, mitigates and responds to anomalous network activity generated by cyber threats. Commanders conduct DCO using organic and expeditionary assets tied into the overall Army enterprise that implement internal defensive measures and external response actions. The overall objective is to establish defense-in-depth across the entirety of cyberspace by simultaneously combining DCO capabilities at global, regional and local levels using a layered and adaptive approach with supporting elements employed physically and virtually in support of cyberspace and unified land operations.
