Cyber Security Lessons from the U.S. Air Force
Of all the branches in the United States armed services, the Air Force is known to always be at the forefront of information technology, particularly in terms of cybersecurity. Over the next few years, the Air Force will augment its cyber defence systems with advanced cloud protection, real-time alerts and automated responses to security incidents.
The Air Force has realized that the current cybersecurity climate calls for appropriate defence measures, and this is something that American business owners should learn from. The theft and subsequent leak of cyberweapons developed by the National Security Agency is an issue that the Air Force has acknowledged as being dangerous; since these advanced hacking tools are now in the hands of cybercrime groups, all business and non-profit organizations should keep in mind.
