Commander, Naval Information Forces (NAVIFOR)

A Critical Capability of the Navy's Mission Set
The U.S. Navy's Information Dominance Corps (IDC) was formed in 2009 and built on the deep expertise and strengths of U.S. Navy active duty, Reserve force, and the civilian workforce from the oceanography/meteorology, information professional, naval intelligence and space cadre. IDC required a dedicate type command that integrated and balanced representation from each of the IDC components. 

Naval Information Forces (NAVIFOR) was originally established on Oct. 1, 2014, as Information Dominance Forces Command. NAVIFOR is the global readiness-focused type command responsible for organizing, manning, training and equipping, and identifying requirements for all information warfare (IW) capabilities. 

On Feb. 9, 2016, the command was renamed from NAVIDFOR to Naval Information Forces (NAVIFOR) as part of the alignment of the Information Dominance Corps, and in response to Chief of Naval Operations "A Design for Maintaining Maritime Security."  |  Navy.MIL  |  |  Navy FOIA  |  DoD Accessibility/Section 508  |  No Fear Act  |  Open Government  |  Plain Writing Act  |
