Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno announced a change in command at the Army's main cybersecurity training center on Aug. 1.

Maj. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, who most recently led the Army's Intelligence and Security Command, will replace Maj. Gen. LaWarren Patterson as commanding general of the Cyber Center of Excellence at Fort Gordon, Ga. Patterson is set to be deputy commanding general for operations and chief of staff at the Army's Installation Management Command, Joint Base San Antonio.

In announcing last December that its Cyber Command would be housed at Fort Gordon, the Army described the Cyber Center of Excellence as "a focal point for cyber doctrine and capabilities development, training and innovation."

In an interview with FCW in late 2012, Fogarty detailed the benefits of the Army's Distributed Common Ground System, a database for collecting and disseminating intelligence that has drawn scrutiny on Capitol Hill for delays in its implementation.
