Cyberspace 220: International Cyberspace Education (ICE)
Cyberspace 220 is a professional development course for international cyberspace professionals as they transition from tactical to operational level responsibilities. This course is designed for our multinational partners with similar cyber background or Undergraduate Cyber Training (UCT) as USAF cyberspace professionals. The ICE course provides an appreciation of the design, development, and acquisition of cyberspace systems. Students are provided a broad background in cyber asset capabilities, limitations, vulnerabilities and how they are relevant to application and employment in US Joint military operations. Students will be able to apply mission analysis to support cyberspace planning and operations. Multinational partners who graduate from ICE will have to ability to analyze full spectrum cyberspace operations and articulate the strategic effects of cyberspace capabilities in a multinational campaign or operations.
NOTE: All international military students must be formally sponsored and nominated by their respective governments.
Mission: Train coalition cyber professionals to leverage international expertise with their understanding of cyberspace system capabilities, limitation, and vulnerabilities in the planning and execution of combined forces cyberspace operations at the tactical and strategic level.
