In an effort to educate more cyberwarriors in the most cost-effective way, the Air Force’s military intelligence organization is changing up its teaching format and releasing some of its coursework in a video.
The information systems security officers and information security systems managers course at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, has been taught face to face for several years, but starting next month, 25th Air Force members will be able to watch an online video of the 3-day course, according to an April 19 announcement.
“We were tasked with providing more training, more varied training and to train twice as many people this year than we did last year,” Lauren Gray, 25th Air Force cybersecurity training manager, said in a statement. “We had to find a way to stretch that dollar and make the training cost effective.
The video will have 14 modules and feature topics such as roles and responsibilities, the role of a risk management framework, cyber and insider threats, and an auditing overview.
Information security officers and managers will also soon have additional courses, which are currently being developed. They will include information on security implementation and how to build a security plan along with a course tailored for senior leadership.
