The cybernetic brigade of the army and the Digital Service of Defense unite themselves on tha launch of a new space of colaboration.
Experts in digital forensic and security computing of the Insitute International Cybernautic Security inform that they are executing an expansion in the army’s cybernautic training center in Fort Gordon, Georgia. These news colaboration spaces will be destined to unite the best technological talents, the innovators of the defense department and investigators from the private sector to resolve the most important problem that faces the american cybersecurity: the work force.
The members of the american army’s cybernetic brigade, called ARCYBER, and the leaders of the Defense Digital Service (DDS) were in Augusta last thursday to announce the opening of a new work place “designed to host technological tools, develop talent and promote the creation of new ways to resolve the challenges in cybersecurity, informs ana nnouncement of the department.
These new spaces have been called “Tatooine”, a reference to the deset planet which was the home of Luke Skywalker, character of the Star Wars saga.
“Tatooine will be a place for the technical talent within the army, a place to write codes and resolve high impact problems”, said the DDS director, Chris Lynch, in the presentation of the new instalations last thrusday. “Together, men and women, profesionals and technicians in cybersecurity and digital forensic are finding new ways to swiftly resolve the challenges we find.
In this place, soldiers and the experts in technology of the DDS will work together in various pilot programs, internally known as “Jyn Erso” (another Star Wars reference) that will help the department with their war efforts and will train the soldiers to adapt and respond to the new needs and problems. The first one of this pilot programs will focus in the detection of drones, the active hunt of cybernetic threats in the networks of the Department of Defense (DoD) and the design of better training systems for the soldiers that work in computing areas.
“To help the army to resolve the technical challenges and the talent administration, the DDS and the army’s Cybernetic Commando have asociated to reunite soldiers that are gifted with civil talents of the private sector to quickly develop the cybernetic abilities needed at present” said the ARCYBER commander, the Lieutenant Stephen Fogarty. “This innovator association will solve complex threats and will serve as a powerful tool of personnel and recruitment retention.
The military personnel interested in joinning these pilot programs or others, can register with a special portal of Google Hire created for this program.
Furthermore the cooperation of ARCYBER and the DDS, this space will also serve as the HQ of academic and industrial programs via programs like one bug-report reward “Hack the Army” or the pilot one “Civialian Hiring-as-a-Service” that seeks to count with more civialians specialized in technology and digital forensic.
“Technology has converted in the new battlefield”, said Lynch. “Recruit, support and retain technical talent in the army can represent unique challenges, since the capability to the compensation, and secure new growing opportunities and participation in a quick evolution field”.
