Chapter Learns About Cyber Economic Impact

Eric Bassel, director of the SANS Institute, spoke to the chapter during its February luncheon. His discussed the economic implications of a potential cyber attack on critical U.S. infrastructure, to include military assets. Bassel added a fresh perspective to the cyber battle space from a perspective of an organization whose principle product is training the cyberwarriors of the future. The government has different approaches and standards for how and to what degree the next-gen cybersoldiers are to be trained. Each service has different approaches but with the same desired outcome, presenting a dilemma for the SANS Institute. AFCEA has been a staunch supporter of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and the chapter is laser focused on supporting programs and public institutions that foster the bedrock education that can eventually lead to making good candidates for the future cyberwar.
