Physical Security
Cybersecurity covers more than the domain of cyberspace and the intangibility of the internet. Threats lurk around every corner in the real world and people often forget the importance of physical security. Not only should you be vigilantly aware of adversaries and threats on your network, but also be on the lookout for threats within the workplace or your surroundings as well.

For questions or more information, contact the wing cybersecurity office at 412tw.cybersecurity.office@us.af.mil.fighter.
