Our next chapter luncheon will be held on Thursday the 13th of June from 1130 am to 1 pm at the Ft. Bragg Officers Club. The Guest Speaker is scheduled to be Eric Bassel, Director, SANS Institute .

The topic will be”The Economic Case for Cyber Warfare”:

Some say that cyber warfare is inevitable. Some say that we are already engaged in cyber war. Others say the reality of this threat is way over hyped. In this unclassified talk, Eric Bassel will build an economic case for cyber warfare from the point of view of a potential adversary. He will discuss the logic behind which countries have the greatest incentive to exploit this domain and why they will feel compelled to do this. Finally, he will explore several likely paths these countries might take to create this reality and, most importantly, what we should do to prepare.


Bio - Eric Bassel, Director, SANS Institute

After graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Mr. Bassel deployed to combat with the 101st Airborne Division as an Assault Helicopter Platoon Leader. His platoon was part of the initial invasion into Iraq in Operation Desert Storm. Upon return from combat, he assessed and trained to become a Special Forces Pilot for the 160th Special Operations Regiment. He deployed on numerous special operations missions as an attack helicopter platoon leader and operations officer during his 5 years with the 160th. After 9 years in the Army, Mr. Bassel left the service and attended Harvard Business School. Upon graduation, he went to work for Alcoa, serving in a variety of positions and was eventually named the president of a division with operations in the United States, Europe and China. After four years as division president, Mr. Bassel left Alcoa and joined SANS Institute, seeing it as an opportunity to serve his country once again as it faced threats in cyber terrorism. Over the past six years at SANS, Eric has worked with all four services and other government agencies in developing innovative methods to train and prepare them for cyber warfare.



2012 Science Teaching Tools Grant Recipient

Students’ learning experience enriched as a result of AFCEA grant:

Eastern Wayne Elementay Students learning with their new mimio machine.

Eastern Wayne Elementay student learning with the new mimio teach system.

I received a grant from the AFCEA-NC Chapter to purchase a mimio teach system for my classroom. My mimio teach has been a great asset for my room in bringing 21st century technology and real world examples to my students. My students have also enjoyed using the system to learn and even teach their classmate! Without it, my students would not have the opportunities in using technology! Thank you so much for your generous donation!
