IT RECENTLY GAVE US RARE ACCESS TO THE CENTER WHERE AMERICA’S MILITARY WATCHES THE WORLD. LIKE WHEN NORTH KOREA FIRES ITS MISSILES. THAT WOULD BE DID WITHIN SECONDS BY SATELLITE, RADAR, OR BOTH.>>SATELLITE WOULD PICK UP THE INFRARED SIGNATURE. BUT THE RADAR GIVES YOU A CONTINUOUS NOTICE. RO THAT TREKKING AND POTENTIAL IMPACT INFORMATION IS THEN DISPLAYED ON ONE OF THE LARGE MAP AUDITORS AROUND THE ROOM. — MONITORS AROUND THE ROOM. WE CAN SEND IT TO THE MILITARY AND NATIONAL LEADERSHIP. RO THEY ARE ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT ATTACKS LAUNCHED FROM KEYBOARDS AND BEYOND.>>THAT IS WHAT ESCAPES A LOT OF PEOPLE. ROB: AIR FORCE COLONEL, AND OMAHA NATIVE, IS THE DATA WATCH COMMANDER. UNDERSTANDING THE FULL SPECTRUM OF RESPONSIBILITY. RO RESPONSIBILITIES THAT REQUIRE A FULL SPECTRUM OF EXPERTS.

  1. Last week, (early August, 2018,) at a computer technology security event, a 10 year old boy successfully hacked into a South Florida election center's computer and changed voter registration information, (names, addresses, etc.) with only a WiFi connection, in under ten minutes.

    He was considered among the, "2nd. tier," level of proficiency of the computer technology and security experts in attendance that day.

    There was a not insignificant number of participants classified as being an entire proficiency level above his taking part in the day's demonstrations.

    Are we really as safe and secure as we think?!?
