Summary/Abstract: The successful use of the military instrument of power, across all levels of the operational art, is influenced by the existence of a rezilient command and control system. From the perspective of an accelerated and flexible decision-making process, this article analyzes the role of cyber defense in providing the requested resilience of the technological component of the C2 system, in an operational environment characterized by the proliferation of cyber risks and threats. The interoperability and connectivity standards required by the military communication and information systems determine a comprehensive and integrated approach to cyber defense, at every level of operational art. Cyber defense implementation requires a unitary military strategy, that should include an extensive interagency communication and cooperation, as well as consultation with specific industries. During armed conflict, this process enables a quick translation of politico-military objectives at operational and tactical level.
