US Navy to train its own “Sailor Hackers”

The US Navy plans to train its own team of ethical hackers in a five-day intensive course that will take place in San Diego, June 6 -10. It is seeking to train 34 NAVSUP Cyber Workforce professionals.

According to the Navy, a certified ethical hacker “is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in networks and/or computer systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker upon request from an organization. The certification is for individuals who are responsible for securing (or testing the security of) computer networks.”
