Training for Information Assurance
April 2002 (vol. 35 no. 4)
pp. 30-37

The US is at great risk from terrorist manipulation of the intangible bits and bytes of cyberspace. US military institutions are already preparing for cyberspace terrorism and warfare by educating cadets in information assurance. In January 2000, the US Military Academy at West Point created an information assurance course that centers on a competitive, hands-on defensive project: protect a real network from real attack.This project forced the cadets to pull together what they know theoretically and apply it to a real network under attack without risking the damage that mistakes would cause on a live network.The authors encourage other organizations to follow their lead by conducting similar competitive exercises.
