“Right now, U.S. Cyber Command has about 133 cyber mission teams spread across the services, which make up its Cyber Mission Force — the ‘action arm’ of Cybercom,” said Army Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, who serves as both the Commander of Cybercom and the Director of the National Security Agency.

“We originally built the force in the department — 133 teams — that were dedicated to our Cyber Mission Force,” Nakasone said during testimony Tuesday before the House Armed Services Committee. “The previous secretary of defense has approved a 14-team growth in the future years’ defense plan. We’re going to grow five more teams this year.”
