The West Virginia - led U . S . team finished 15th overall . “There were two major accomplishments during this exercise this year .

Army Staff Sgt . Ian Frist , a combat medic with the 197th Regional Training Institute . “I had military members as well as students and it was an incredible experience to watch such a diverse group come together in a short amount of time and perform so well during the exercise . I think Locked Shields showcased the unique capabilities the National Guard is able to bring to the cyber battlefront . The National Guard is able to leverage drill status guardsmen soldiers , like me , who work in the civilian cybersecurity industry . Living in both worlds gives me an incredibly unique perspective on cybersecurity operations that I felt was indispensable during the exercise . ” Partnered with the United States’ Blue Team were students from West Virginia University , Marshall University , and West Virginia Tech who are in academic tracks ranging from engineering to cybersecurity , media , and law . “The partnership and collaboration between higher education and DISA to support the Locked Shields exercise is invaluable , ” said Dr . Scott Fleming , Dean of the Business , Humanities , and Social Sciences at WVU Institute of Technology . “Through simulations that require multiple skill sets , we can help improve preparedness from a reactionary to proactive posture , and we can only accomplish this through activities such as this . Through the model of “Prevent , Detect , and Correct , ” participating students from West Virginia University , West Virginia University Institute of Technology , and Marshall University can hone their cybersecurity , management , organizational , engineering , public relations , accounting and financial , and crisis management skills . We are honored to participate , and we look forward to continuing and expanding the partnership going forward . ” Additional agency participants included the Defense Information Systems Agency , Army Corps of Engineers , Financial Services and Information Sharing and Analysis Center , U .

Gen . Bill Crane . “Our West Virginia National Guard members punch well above their weight class when it comes to cyber , and I could not be more proud of what they showcased during Locked Shields . ” Crane continued , “It cannot be understated that there is a critical need for advanced cyber security training and exercises such as Locked Shields . The benefits to our National Guard members , government and industry partners are vital to building resilience and future capabilities for our state and nation . ”
