The Washington Examiner reported yesterday that:

The U.S. Naval Academy is changing its core curriculum for the first time in about 10 years by adding two cybersecurity courses …

The two new requirements come as the school is ramping up training in a field of growing importance to national security. …

"All along, our role has been to develop one or two courses that would give every academy graduate a solid foundation in cybersecurity," said Andrew Phillips, the school’s academic dean. "We spent over a year now collecting advice and feedback from the Navy and the Marine Corps and shopping our ideas around with anyone who might have an opinion and some expertise in this area."

imageIt was interesting to read that the Navy is trailing the U.S. Military Academy and U.S. Air Force Academy, which have had cybersecurity as part of information technology requirements for more than a decade.

Maybe Leroy Jethro Gibbs and the crew over at NCSI convinced the Navy they should step into the modern era!
