It’s no longer a secret that the US Air Forces are going to be getting hit with a major cutback in spending come March 1st, 2013. However, the team at San Antonio’s military base isn’t giving up on adding more personnel to their team.
The US Air Force Space Command center wishes to hire about 1000 new employees starting in 2014. These 1000 new employees would be working on cyber security. Cyber security has become a crucial point for the United States and therefore, they need a larger team in order to properly protect the country.
John Dickson at San Antonio’s Denim Group Ltd. Stated the following:
“The Space Command is viewing cyber security as a foundational activity — you cannot do without it.”
And he’s spot on when he says that. Cyber security is equally important as other forms of security in this country. Although many people are still on the other side of this argument, thinking that the physical security of the United States is still more important. I think we can all see just how important cyber security is when our banks are hit with malware that allows individuals overseas full access to our bank accounts.
These days, there are trained individuals worldwide that are trained to hack. This poses a huge threat to countries, especially the United States. We need to have a team of trained experts that will help protect the country against cyber attacks that could take down our entire system.
