Cyber warrant officer leads West Point research program for protecting critical U.S. infrastructure

By U.S. Army Cyber Command

A major project to explore employment of the total Army force to defend the nation's critical infrastructure from cyber attack developed by the Army Cyber Institute (ACI) at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point was recently codified into law, thanks in large part to the efforts of the first Cyber Operations Technician to serve at ACI.

Chief Warrant Officer 3 Judy Esquibel, ACI research scientist and instructor in the academy's Department of Engineering and Computer Science, served as lead research scientist on the institute's "Jack Voltaic" program, which was codified as part of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019.
