The U.S. Army announced Dec. 19 that the new headquarters for Army Cyber Command will be located at Fort Gordon, Ga.

Since the command was set up in 2010, it has been temporarily split among seven government buildings and leased space across the Washington, D.C., area, the Army said. The move to a permanent location at Fort Gordon will place the command’s headquarters with significant cyberspace forces already there, creating an opportunity to improve coordination in countering cyber threats.

"Cyber threats are real, sophisticated, growing and evolving," said Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon, who leads the command. "The Army's decision demonstrates support for unity of command and the importance of cyber to our Army and our nation."

The command will continue to have a liaison at U.S. Cyber Command, located at Fort Meade, Md. U.S. Cyber Command, part of the Omaha, Neb.-based U.S. Strategic Command, coordinates cyber operations across the Department of Defense.
