The U.S. Transportation Command was the first U.S. Defense Department organization to begin moving its cyber capabilities, along with command and control applications, to a commercial cloud environment. More than a year later, the unified command is making strides in transferring its unclassified systems and is sharing lessons learned that will make the path to cloud usage smoother for others to follow.

Personnel with the 618th Tanker Airlift Control Center coordinate global operations from Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. The U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) finds itself amid battles in cyberspace as intrusions on networks owned by its commercial partners pose a significant threat to U.S. military operations.

The U.S. Transportation Command, in charge of providing land, sea and air mobility to U.S. forces worldwide, now finds itself tasked with its own form of conflict in the cyber domain. Its use of commercial assets has opened it to foreign cyber intrusions that could potentially threaten U.S. military operations in a time of conflict as they depend heavily on mobility for force projection and logistics support.
