AUGUSTA (WFXG) — It’s one of the fastest growing developmental programs in the world. Every little bit of progress matters in a world where cyber criminals are targeting America.
“A lot of these hacks we hear about is the manipulation of people,” said Sarah Rees, the director of the Cyber Workforce Academy at the Georgia Cyber Center. “It’s simple things like a phishing email, or guessing a password that was really simple or easy to guess.”
Nowadays, cyber hacks are coming at America from every direction. Augusta University political science professor Dr. Craig Albert has taken a special interest in Russian activity.
