DISA expands cybersecurity mission at Hill Air Force Base
In a non-descript brick building 30 miles north of Salt Lake City, a cadre of information technology and cybersecurity experts operate and defend the telecommunications infrastructure that supports soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines around the globe.
The Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Global Operations Center West, located on Hill Air Force Base, Utah, began performing this mission July 15. A ribbon-cutting celebrating the accomplishment took place Oct. 25.
“Today, we mark the culmination of an idea that began more than four years ago: a vision for a second operations center to perform standardized network operations using the same tools, privileges, tactics, techniques, and procedures as the DISA Global Operations Center located at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois,” said Navy Vice Adm. Nancy Norton, director of DISA.
