The Dutch Defense Cyber Command: A New Operational Capability

“The DCC formally resides within the Royal Netherlands Army, the land forces element of the Dutch armed forces (in Dutch: ‘Commando Landstrijdkrachten’ (CLAS)), but involves officers from all military domains. The DCC is primarily tasked with defense, but will also work on offense and, to a lesser extent, intelligence. The DCC will cooperate with the MIVD and the Joint Sigint Cyber Unit (JSCU). The JSCU is a joint organization of the General Intelligence & Security Service (AIVD) and the Military Intelligence & Security Service (MIVD) that is tasked with the collection of data from technical sources, making it accessible and searchable, perform analysis (correlation, data mining), and delivering sigint and cyber capability in support of the intelligence requirements of the AIVD and MIVD (possibly on-site in military deployment areas). Roughly put, the DCC is the Dutch smaller equivalent of USCYBERCOM, and the JSCU is the Dutch smaller equivalent of the NSA.”
