Cyber Security Military Training: U.S. Army xxx Abstract – Throughout military history, leaders and Commanders have fought on a battlefield that was defined by a geographical location with specific limits. Battles consisted of Soldiers on the ground fighting face to face with the enemy. Military operations were successful due to the effective tactics that have been utilized in previous wars. For the first time in history mankind has created its own battlefield. This battlefield is without boundaries, borders or the necessity to engage the enemy in close combat. Cyberspace is the new battlefield. Leaders and Commanders cannot rely on tactics used in previous conflicts, therefore new fighting techniques had to be developed. As technology evolves, the threat from state and non-state actors will continue to evolve and proliferate [1]. The Department of Defense and all Uniformed Services are speedily searching and preparing for Cyber Security. A Soldier today now includes technically trained individuals that are prepared to defend the U.S. in battle through Defensive Cyber Operations. B ATTLEFIELDS Air, water, land and space are four of the five military domains. The military domain environment, factors, and conditions must be understood to successfully apply combat power, protect the force and complete a mission. This includes the domains used by the enemy and friendly forces; facilities; weather; terrain; the electromagnetic spectrum; and the information environment within the operational areas and areas of interest [1]. Adversaries plan and rehearse the execution of their operations utilizing simulation or gaming technology aided by artificial intelligence that replicates real terrain, physical structures, and social interaction in cyberspace [1]. The effects will be delivered physically and in cyberspace. Cyberspace is the fifth domain and the adversaries are already preparing battle. C HANGING THE B ATTLEFIELD For centuries, wars have been fought on traditional battlefields. In the last ten years, the battlefield has quickly changed into another domain Soldiers recently started defending. The first Army Cyber Protection Brigade was activated in Fort Gordon, Georgia September 5, 2014. The battleground has evolved from infantry tactician maneuvering through physical terrain to a state of transparent espionage on a multi- dimensional battlefield. Although espionage and counter intelligence has been a tactic for military operations, foreign and domestic, it has not become as complex as it has today [2]. The type of espionage being used in battlespaces now requires defenses beyond infantry training. The present battlefield is forcing militaries to re-invent training for Soldiers and nations to be successful in protecting their nation state.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
