NEW DELHI (BNS): Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Anil Chauhan has released the "Joint Doctrine for Cyberspace Operations" during the Chiefs of Staff Committee (COSC) meeting held on June 18, 2024, in New Delhi.

The Joint Doctrine is a keystone publication that will guide Commanders in conducting Cyberspace Operations in today's "complex military operating environment."

"Development of Joint Doctrines is an important aspect of Jointness and Integration, a step which is being actively pursued by the Indian Armed Forces. The Joint Doctrine for Cyberspace Operations is a significant step to give impetus to the ongoing process," an official release issued here said.

In addition to the traditional domains of warfare including Land, Sea, and Air, Cyberspace has emerged as a crucial and challenging domain in modern warfare. Unlike territorial limits in the domains of land, sea, and air, cyberspace is a "global common" and hence has shared sovereignty.

Hostile actions in cyberspace can impact the Nation's economy, cohesion, political decision making, and the Nation's ability to defend itself. Operations in cyberspace need to be dovetailed into the National Security fabric, to evolve the 'Ends,' 'Ways' and 'Means' to create advantage and influence events in all other operational environments and across all instruments of power.

"The doctrine lays emphasis on understanding military aspects of cyberspace operations and provides conceptual guidance to commanders, staff and practitioners in the planning, and conduct of operations in cyberspace, as also to raise awareness in our warfighters at all levels," the official release said.
