New ‘cyber college’ to train airmen on cyber challenges

Airmen may soon take cybersecurity classes as part of a new school designed to bring the Air Force’s digital abilities to the cutting edge. “Ultimately, when we’re fully capable, every airmen will have access to content on cyber education that makes them aware of the world around them and their goal of being problem solvers,” said Lt. Gen. Steven Kwast, who’s heading up the endeavor. On June 2, Kwast, commander of Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, made public the plans to create a “cyber college” to expand the education and training available to airmen. A few days later, the federal government announced it was the victim of one of the largest data breaches in history, with hackers getting personal information on millions of Americans. “It just reinforces the fact that we as a society, and really we as a world, have grown dependent on cyber,” Kwast told Air Force Times. “Those dependencies can create vulnerabilities that we have to be able to defend against.” Kwast hopes the new cyber college will help lead the Air Force’s answer to that growing cyber threat. “The purpose of Air University is to help educate airmen for the defense of this nation,” […]

This funding will go towards training for local authorities, schools, SMEs and enterprises, with the ministry also overseeing drills to prepare for attacks linked to the Games, such as websites being hacked and ticket sale scams. There are also reportedly plans for red teaming exercises. The ministry, which did not respond to our request for comment, aims to create industry-wide forums so companies can share best practices and other knowledge in the realm of cyber-security in the run-up to the Olympics. One security expert, who played a key and senior role in securing the 2012 London Olympics, told SCMagazineUK.com that the games is probably being used ‘as a vehicle’ to reduce the much-publicised information security skills gap. The Nikkei report cites one study which claims that 160,000 of the 265,000 infosec personnel in the country lack the skills need for the job. “My reading of this is that it must be broader than just the […]
