According to President Barack Obama's fiscal 2016 funding request, the military services each want to bring on board an additional 20 to 60 computer security whizzes starting Fall 2016 to fill the ranks of a 6,000 person Cyber Command.

Air Force Major General James Martin earlier this week said that increases in the service's operations and maintenance budget would create a total of 39 cyber teams. Those teams will include "200 military personnel in cyber operations and cyber warfare positions to counter growing worldwide cyber threats," according to budget documents.
