Improving cybersecurity in Michigan
Improving cyber security across Michigan is the goal of a new training center that opened today in Battle Creek.
The Michigan Cyber Range will mainly train National Guardsmen to identify cyberattacks.
But it will also provide training for civilians.
Joe Adams is the director of the Michigan Cyber Range. He says the training will help military and civilian IT professionals prepare for the growing threat from other countries and cyber criminals.
“The attacker will always have the advantage by being able to focus and pinpoint a place to attackm which is why we’re trying to train across the industry, so that more people can be aware,” Adams says.
Adams says cyberattacks target weak links in the system to gain access across the web.
