Army to Set Up Cyber Center; Robert Goldsmith Comments

cybersecurityThe U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center plans to set up a campus to provide cybersecurity support for government agencies, the Army said Thursday.

Carlotta Maneice writes the ARMDEC Cyber Campus will be based in Redstone Arsenal, Alabama and is scheduled to be operational in 2017.

Robert Goldsmith, cyber lead at ARMDEC, said the center will house a team of personnel who will work to detect network vulnerabilities, offer support to missile system and aviation clients and carry out research and development of platforms designed to prevent cyber attacks.

“The fact that we are co-locating red and blue cyber teams in the same building is advantageous to both parties because we can cross train with one another and share insights and intelligence about the threats we discover,” he added.
