First Cyber Classes Conclude at Wright-Patt

More than 100 students graduated last week from the Air Force Institute of Technology’s new Cyber 200 and Cyber 300 courses at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. These airmen and DOD military personnel were the first-ever participants in these professional development courses, which are designed for cyberspace warriors transitioning to intermediate and higher level responsibilities. “If we do not pay attention to what is happening in cyberspace, our adversaries will take advantage of us by taking our advantage away. That is how important it is for us to train and educate in this cyber domain,” said Gen. Robert Kehler, Air Force Space Command commander, at the Oct. 28 graduation ceremony. “This is a good start,” he added, predicting AFIT’s role in developing cyber warriors for the nation would continue to grow and mature.
