The United States Army established the Cyber Branch through General Orders No. 2014-63 on August 21, 2014, with an effective date of September 1. A press release announcing the creation of the Cyber Corps wasn’t forthcoming until November, but by then its formation was a foregone conclusion, with the only question mark being whether it would be called simply “Cyber” or “Cyber Warfare.”

Just four days after the branch was established, the Army announced the activation of its first Cyber Protection Brigade during a ceremony at Fort Gordon, the home of the Army’s Cyber Center of Excellence (Fort Gordon was redesignated as Fort Eisenhower in October 2023). The brigade comprised its Headquarters and 20 Cyber Protection Teams (CPT), which consist of both active-duty military and civilians tasked with conducting cyberspace ops as mission support. Each CPT is made up of about 40 personnel.

Trained to a joint, common standard, the CPTs are part of U.S. Cyber Command’s Cyber Mission Force. Just two years after these teams deployed with the Cyber Protection Brigade, the Department of Defense announced that every one of its Cyber Mission Teams—more than 130 in all, 41 of them from the Army—had achieved initial operating capability. At the time of that announcement in October 2016, all those teams—made up of roughly 5,000 men and women at the time—were expected to be operating at full mission capacity by the end of Fiscal Year 2018.

As of Autumn 2023, the Cyber Corps consists of three Brigades, one from which of the Army's three components: the Cyber Protection Brigade (Active Component), 91st Cyber Brigade (Army National Guard), and U.S. Army Reserve Cyber Protection Brigade.
