The Digital Force Protection Training (DigiForPro) is a 5-day course educating NATO operators about the threats posed by hybrid warfare actors’ use of the Internet.
The course will provide information on how to improve methods of investigating and protecting NATO SOF entities in digital environments, both at home as well as during exercises and operations. Students will learn how to navigate the digital engagement space securely and understand the role digital information plays in 21st century warfare, including adversary capabilities and methods. Increased use of social media coupled with technological advances in data collection and aggregation capabilities undermine traditional Operational Security practices and leave forces vulnerable to adversary’s intent on acquiring and exploiting sensitive, critical information. Digital Force Protection (DFP) awareness and education are critical to protect Alliance SOF operators.
This course has a computer and smart phone heavy curriculum.
In addition to a 3322 in English language skill, students should be comfortable speaking English in front of groups to participate in this course.
