The Department of the Army announced on Wednesday that it will relocate the U.S. Army Network Operations and Security Center to Fort Belvoir, Va., in order to be closer to other military cyber operations centers. The computer security center will be located in the same facility as the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command.
Other military computer command centers near the U.S. Capitol include the Defense Information Systems Agency, the Joint Task Force--Computer Network Operations, the 1st Information Operations Command and the Army Computer Emergency Response Team. The move brings together all Army computer network operations capabilities, forming a single team to provide the expertise and support needed to protect and defend the Army's information networks, the Department of the Army said in a statement. The relocation will require several months to complete.
