Cyber Warriors

Cyber Warriors

Increased risk, increased defense

The advancement of technology has streamlined countless processes and paved the way for many diverse solutions and innovations. Though, along with these technological advances comes an increase in cyber security threats. That’s why the Michigan Army National Guard is leading a military force on developing Cyber Warriors. As a Cyber Warrior, you could be a part of the front line of defense against the cyber security threats targeting our state and nation.

The MI Army Guard has roughly 600 Secret and Top Secret computer specialty positions which are tremendous assets, available to the State Government and civilian industry alike. Michigan’s Army Cyber Protection Team and Air National Guard’s Cyber Squadron makes our state the only state in the Union to have such a robust future on Cyber initiatives. The Guard is recruiting Cyber Warriors, Signal specialty positions and other Information Technology specialties in several locations in the state. Currently there are 134 vacant positions that are rapidly filling, with 14 of those specifically defined as part of the state’s Cyber Protection Team. Units looking for these tech savvy warriors are located in Ypsilanti, Detroit, Howell, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Albion, Bay City, Alma, Port Huron, Battle Creek and Lansing.

State Tuition Assistance in combination with other federal assistance pays up to 100% of tuition costs to allow Soldiers to receive the civilian training and certificates to also be competitive in Michigan’s industrial, manufacturing and business sectors. Soldiers in these fields are highly marketable because not only do they have Government Security Clearances, they are also drug-free. In addition, they are committed to protecting and serving our state and local communities, both online and off.
