MIDDLE RIVER — Members of the Maryland Air National Guard’s 275th Cyberspace Operations Squadron recently became the first cyber operators in the Air National Guard to certify a Cyber Protection Team using their weapon system on a live base network during real-world missions.

“We operate the cyber vulnerability assessment hunter weapon system,” said Capt. Ashley Oates, 275th COS flight commander and mission element lead for the certification event. “It is a toolkit that does exactly what it says, in that it is a vulnerability assessment toolkit that has capabilities for both network analysis and host analysis.”
