Army General Frank J. Grass, National Guard Bureau Chief and member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, announced plans to form the National Guard Cyber Protection Team, which will establish a cyber-defense capability in each of the ten multi-state Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regions.
The long-term goal will be to have the Guard establish cyber capabilities across the nation where key industries and universities can partner to support expanding the Guard’s cyber operations and recruiting needs.
“We’re going to get there. That’s going to be easy. We want to try to have a cyber-capability in every state someday,” Grass said.
