Chief cyberwarrior to join Army CIO

The U.S. military's top cyberwarrior will join the Army's chief information officer office in November, according to a service statement today.

Army Maj. Gen. Dave Bryan will lead the Army's signal force reorganization. "Dave will be the HQDA's 'lead dog' in restructuring the signal regiment, people and equipment," Army CIO Lt. Gen. Steve Boutelle said in the statement.

Boutelle has cited reorganizing Army signal elements as one of his top priorities as the service's new CIO. Bryan "is on a 'fast track' to facilitate that restructure based on Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and the Balkans," Boutelle said.

Bryan commands the Joint Task Force-Computer Network Operations, which oversees the U.S. military's computer network defense and attack missions. He helped form JTF-CNO three years ago.

As JTF-CNO commander, Bryan also was deputy director of the Defense Information Systems Agency.
