Keesler AFB and Mississippi State University developed a partnership earlier this year to enhance cyber capabilities.
“Our goal is to share ideas and resources,” said Violet Brantley, 81st Training Group training administrator. “By working together, we can learn from each other.”
Throughout 2020, Keesler AFB and MSU have conducted multiple visits, toured the area and tested their capabilities together.
“Cyber is a very fast, evolving field, and it is extremely important to train with currency,” said David Shaw, MSU provost and executive vice president. “We strive to benefit students everywhere, so we must adapt to research findings for security.”
MSU eventually assisted the 81st TRG by collaborating to improve instruction and taught multiple cyber courses to staff.
