About the Cyber National Mission Forces

By Cyber National Mission Force Public Affairs

The Cyber National Mission Force is the U.S. military’s joint cyber force charged with Defending the Nation in cyberspace through full-spectrum operations to deter, disrupt, and, if necessary, defeat adversary cyber and malign influence actors. CNMF supports U.S. Cyber Command and national priorities such as election security, ransomware, cyber espionage, and other crises while remaining persistently engaged globally and supporting contingency operations. CNMF executes defensive cyber operations abroad as part of the Department’s larger defend forward strategy, deploying more than 55 times to 27 countries and conducting hunt operations on over 75 networks since 2018. Since its inception in 2014, U.S. Cyber Command’s Cyber National Mission Force has rapidly evolved to meet the needs of the Nation and has participated in or responded to almost every national crisis the U.S. has faced.
