    The Army's Network Operations and Security Center (NOSC) is heading 
    east and soon will be located at Fort Belvoir, Va., according to the 
    service's chief information officer. 
    The Army's NOSC, which is responsible for the service's cybersecurity 
    planning and guidance, is located alongside the Network Enterprise 
    Technology Command (Netcom) at Fort Huachuca, Ariz. The center is 
    moving east to be located with the Army Computer Emergency Response 
    Team at Fort Belvoir, said Lt. Gen. Peter Cuviello, Army CIO.
    Netcom began operations in October 2002 to manage the Army's 
    information technology and networks enterprisewide, and Cuviello said 
    the new command is making great progress in its management and 
    planning roles. However, NOSC is being moved to make it easier for the 
    Army's two main offices dedicated to cybersecurity issues to 
    collaborate on servicewide objectives and goals.
    "Virtual is the name of the game, but there are some things you can't 
    do virtually," Cuviello said during a Jan. 23 speech at a 
    network-centric warfare conference in Arlington, Va. "Theater-level 
    architecture for security is a technical challenge."
    NOSC's cross-country move should be completed by June, he said.

    without communications is irrelevant." Gen Alfred. M. Gray, USMC
