TSOC Cyber Planner Course (Pilot)
This course prepares staff officers for planning, management, and oversight of cyber-related activities at the Theater Special Operations Command (TSOC) level. The course examines the organizations, processes, and procedures involved in planning and conducting operations in the cyber domain in-support-of deployed forces and the TSOC staff. During the course, students will conduct two planning evolutions simulating the actions required to employ cyber effects.
This course is designed specifically for the special operations community and interagency partners assigned to and/or in direct support of joint and coalition special operations. More specifically, enlisted (E4-E6), officers (02-05), warrant (W1–W3), and government personnel (up to GG/GS 14) assigned to TSOC’s, or associated echelons, who are involved in planning and conducting operations in the cyber domain. All others are evaluated and accepted on a case-by-case basis.
All required texts and materials will be available to the student on either the course e-Campus site or issued upon arrival in the classroom. Each student MUST have after hours – NOT in the classroom – access to commercial internet and the course e-Campus site prior to and throughout the course. Classified material, to include additional homework readings and student assignments, will be handled exclusively on JWICS; consequently, each student must have JWICS access via a DODIIS or SOCRATES account.
