— May 7, 2015 — U.S. 10th Fleet (FCC/C10F) released its updated strategic plan, May 6, during
a media roundtable at the Pentagon.
Vice Adm. Jan E. Tighe, commander, FCC/C10F, met with members of the media to
discuss the plan and the Navy's way forward in the cyberspace domain.

"A lot of work had been done since our inception in 2010 and the world has
changed - gotten a lot more dangerous. The cyberspace domain is changing on a
daily basis," said Tighe in explaining the reason for the update. "First and
foremost [the plan is] a way to organize our mission and to begin to measure if
we're making sufficient progress in each of our goal areas."
Tighe outlined her five strategic goals: operate the network as a warfighting
platform, conduct tailored signals intelligence, deliver warfighting effects
through cyberspace, create shared cyber situational awareness, and establish and
mature the Navy's Cyber Mission Force.
"Also, internal to the Navy, we've just had the release of the updated maritime
strategy [Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower], which has significant
implication for us, as it pertains to 'all domain access' and our role across
the Fleet Cyber Command operational mission sets," Tighe said.
All domain access and specifically ensuring access to space, cyberspace and the
electromagnetic spectrum is a key element in how FCC/C10F fits into the overall
Navy plan, and actually builds on the overall Information Dominance Strategy.
The commissioning of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command and reestablishment of U.S. 10th
Fleet on Jan. 29, 2010 closely followed the Navy's 2009 acknowledgement of
information's centrality to maritime warfighting, known as Information
Information Dominance is defined as the operational advantage gained from fully
integrating the Navy's information functions, capabilities, and resources to
optimize decision making and maximize warfighting effects. The three pillars of
Information Dominance are assured command and control (C2), battlespace
awareness, and integrated fires.
Fleet Cyber Command is a key operational command in delivering on missions
across those three pillars.
