    Hoosier Duo Tops in Cyber Defense Competition

    Chief Warrant Officer 3 Weryke Rader and Master Sgt. Ray
    Priddy, both of the 172nd Cyber Protection Team, Joint Force Headquarters – Indiana, based in
    Indianapolis received top honors in a wireless penetration competition during the training week
    of Cyber Shield 19 at Camp Atterbury, Ind., April 11, 2019.
    Priddy and Radar competed in a virtual, cyber defense-style game of capture the flag. The
    competition was held at the completion of the SANS Institute-sponsored course. The duo’s
    efforts landed them atop the class and they were awarded with a challenge coin.
    The 12th iteration of Cyber Shield 19 began with a week of classroom training. Some classes,
    such as the class attended by Rader and Priddy, are sponsored by industry leaders such as SANS
    Institute, Cisco, John Hopkins University, the International Society of Automation (ISA), etc...
    “This is an opportunity to bring together the Army National Guard, Air National Guard, the
    Army Reserves, private sector, federal and state partners, industry, academia, into a setting
    where we can learn and grow together as a nation,” said Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Burkett, Vice
    Director of Domestic Operations for the National Guard Bureau during the April 9 Pentagon
    media round table.
    The exercise will commence with a week of scenario-based cyber role-playing events. By the end of the exercise, participants will be fully trained and evaluated in cyber defense capabilities and forensic analysis techniques. Cyber units use the exercise to determine and develop intelligence integration and information sharing through incident response training.
    “The nation requires a workforce that is relevant, agile and adaptable if it is to remain technically competitive in global economy and successfully address the continually increasing
    emergent cyber threats from around the globe,” said Maj. Gen. Courtney P. Carr, the Indiana National Guard Adjutant General.
