South Carolina State Guard Cyber Security Team Trains to Fight Malware

Many State Defense Forces have Cyber Defense Units that assist and augment their National Guard, one of those State Defense Forces is the South Carolina State Guard. Recently the unit spent their weekend drill training on identifying and removing malware from infected computers.

Malware is also known as malicious software and when it infects a computer it steals any and all data and sends such information back to the malicious group or country agency that developed the program. It can also damage or destroy the computer or server after stealing such information, this could paralyze a company, agency, or organization. Training events such as these are imperative to have Information Technology professionals be able to locate and remove malware as quick as possible.
