Strategic Command Partnership Enhances 'Cyber-Security'

Strategic Command Partnership Enhances 'Cyber-Security'

By Navy Journalist 1st Class Michael J. Meridith, United States Strategic Command Public Affairs, Offut Air Force Base, Nev. (AFPN), November 12, 1999.

A unique partnership between U.S. Strategic Command and the Peter Kiewit Institute promises significant benefits for both organizations, especially in the realm of computer security, said Air Force Maj. Jerry M. Kain, one of the organizers of the partnership.

Omaha businessman Walter Scott founded PKI two years ago. The Institute brings college students together with business leaders and government officials to mold future leaders in Information Technology and engineering career fields. Currently, PKI boasts more than 2,000 college members.

The partnership initiative grew recently when USSTRATCOM hosted a seminar for members of PKI here. USSTRATCOM Commander in Chief Adm. Richard W. Mies, and Air Force Brig. Gen. Trudy H. Clark, USSTRATCOM's chief information officer, briefed the visiting representatives and provided them a tour of the USSTRATCOM underground command center. The tour was followed by an interactive discussion of information assurance and a reception allowing PKI members and USSTRATCOM's senior leaders the opportunity to network.

Since that visit, USSTRATCOM representatives have been instrumental in collaborating with PKI and the University of Nebraska at Omaha to create a college curriculum that satisfies the information technology needs of the government and business.

"We initiated the effort to develop a cybersecurity certification program," explained Kain. "It's a new curriculum that hasn't been offered or even thought about, but we saw a growing need for it, and local businesses strongly endorsed our proposal."

Kain said that beyond joint research and curriculum development, one of the partnership's greatest benefits is as a recruiting tool.

"It gives USSTRATCOM the opportunity to help educate the local community and expand awareness of what we're doing here. The benefit for us is that we have the potential to bring some of the best and brightest information technologists into the government."
