Providing cybersecurity awareness training to the Navy Special Warfare Group:
Scraping websites and social media to identify warfighters and gather intel on missions and personnel. Using image recognition and Exif data of photos to look for camouflaged warfighters, geographic icons, and reveal their locations. Catfishing personnel in order to extort money or information. Using psychological warfare to lower morale, socially engineer, or sway people to their side. These are just some of the methods our adversaries employ to gain tactical advantages. Unfortunately, personal digital defense strategies are not a typical part of military training. Until now.
Recently, Ross Williams, the Director of Cyber Incent Response Team (CIRT) and Blue Team Services at Critical Start, provided Cybersecurity Awareness Training to members and support staff of the Navy Special Warfare Group (NSWG) to help them understand the landscape of digital warfare and learn ways to minimize their digital exposure.
Director of CIRT and Blue Team Services
Ross’ training included lessons on protecting data like e-mails, and financial records to prevent extortion, using secure methods like Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to communicate with military personnel and family members, and ensuring that social media activity doesn’t provide adversaries information to build psychological profiles or, worse, reveal useful information like locations and schedules.
Digital warfare is a real threat to the country’s security, and Critical Start could not be prouder to employ former service members like Ross who are more than willing to share their time and expertise to educate our military and their families on cybersecurity safety.
Critical Start employs professionals at all levels who once served in the military so giving back to our country’s veterans is a cause close to our hearts. At our annual Sales Kickoff we built care packages for the military, donating to Blue Star Mothers to get these care kits into the hands of active servicemen/women and veterans.
Critical Start has upgraded our hiring process. We now use the Predictive Index (PI) to identify how you work. Through PI, we learn how you like to communicate and collaborate so we can build a team that’s more fun and more effective.
Majority of Critical Start Employees say they would recommend the company to someone they know.
