Cyber Warriors conduct integrated and synchronized offensive cyberspace operations (OCO) by targeting enemy and hostile adversary activities and capabilities. These specialists also conduct defensive cyber operations (DCO) to protect data, networks, net-centric capabilities, and other designated systems. They are responsible for detecting, identifying, and responding to attacks against friendly networks with other lethal and nonlethal actions that enable commanders to gain an advantage in cyberspace, across all domains.
While there is much discussion and hype regarding Army Cyber Operations, many questions still exist regarding the path to becoming a Cyber Warrior. This talk will be presented by the Leaders of the Utah National Guard Cyber Protection Team and will outline the mission, organization, positions, training, and selection criteria for the Army Cyber Forces. This will include activities that people interested can do now to increase their chances of being selected into the Cyber Career Track.
