CyberCity Prepares Air Force for Cybersecurity
December 11, 2012
The Air Force is beefing up training for its cybersecurity personnel. The resulting new training program may be adopted by other agencies.
The Air Force is contracting with the SANS Institute, a computer security training organization, to develop the new training capabilities, which will be incorporated into existing training at the Air Force’s 39th Information Operations Squadron at Hurlburt Field in northwest Florida.
Early next year, airmen will begin beta tests of a new product from SANS called NetWars CyberCity, said Skip Runyan, technical adviser for the Air Force unit.
