God Willing I'll Find Myself There After Graduation
"On October 1st 2009 U.S. Cyber Command (CYBERCOM) became a reality. With high expectations and very little fanfare the efforts led by U.S. Strategic Command began to protect the nation from cyber command initiation efforts to date required the reorganization of 40,000 job positions. An additional 1,000 new jobs are scheduled to be added to cyber command in the not so distant future......"
This is where I hope to find myself after graduation next year. That is, in the civilian arm of the cyber defense program. Maybe with the DoD or Homeland Security. This people, is how the majority of conflicts will be waged for the next several decades. Economic wars, terrorist attacks, political leverage, all of it and more can be attained by having the upper hand in the cyber realm.
Every single aspect of our lives is tied into cyber information systems. From the civilian electrical grid to medical records to military secrets and operations. Everything is contained and thus attainable there.
It's good to see that the U.S of A has finally stepped up and started to take some concrete logistical action in the organization of a coherent, tangible cyber defense apparatus. Here's to global domination, one byte at a time.....
