US building an army of cyber geeks

Written by Nick Farrell



Dubbed the Cyber Reserve


The US government is assembling a unit of computer geeks for what will be known as the “Cyber Reserve.”

The Department of Homeland Security said that the Cyber Reserve would function like a National Guard for computer-related emergencies. This isn’t exactly a new idea. The same law Congress passed in 2002 that established the Department of Homeland Security grants the department permission to build a “National Emergency Technology (NET) Guard” of on-call volunteer specialists to assist in cyber crises.

However for some reason the unit was never formed and now the US is falling behind the rest of the world. Estonia has already started building its own volunteer cyber corps. Initially the group will scout for troops at community colleges. Cyber Reserve will also incorporate two-year training programs into higher education at certain schools. The programs could start as soon as next school year.
