Information Warfare Community (IWC)

The Navy Information Warfare Community (IWC) (previously known as the Information Dominance Corps (IDC) until 8 January 2016) is the result of the alignment of the OPNAV N2 (Intelligence), N6 (Communications Networks), and elements of N3 (N39, information and cyber operations) and N8 (unmanned systems programs and resources) into a unified organization. The IDC is led by the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare (DCNO N2N6)
VADM Jan Tighe. VADM Tighe also holds the position of Director of Naval Intelligence (DNI), Deputy Chief Information Officer (Navy), Director of Navy Cybersecurity, and Cryptologic Warfare Community Leader.
