Spain reorganises national defence structure
Spain is reorganising its armed forces to take into account ‘a constantly evolving strategic environment’, the government has announced.
The Joint Defence General Staff will be strengthened and a Joint Cyberspace Command will be established under a new Royal Decree that was approved by the Council of Ministers on 19 May.
The Joint Cyberspace Command replaces the Joint Cyber Defence Command.
The Royal Decree places digital transformation at the heart of Spanish military organisation, using knowledge-based work process management to promote quality, eliminate duplication, improve agility and save time and resources.
