www.undergroundworldnews.com Every second of every day, people like Warren Hofmann are fending off attacks -- cyber attacks. "We all know it can get to be very serious, very fast," Hofmann said. Chief Warrant Officer Hofmann is an information protection technician for the South Dakota National Guard. Under a partnership between the Governor's office, the National Guard, and private companies, Regis University is hosting the Mountain Defender Cybersecurity Exercise to find better ways to protect computer systems of places like banks, hospitals, corporations and power grids from hackers. "Primarily, our role is -- coordinate, train, assist, and advise," Hofmann said. Hofmann is working with Regis University and other guard units to learn more ways to deal with hackers. "Hopefully, what we see that's going on down here is we take back up to our state," Hofmann said. Lieutenant Colonel Brad Rhodes leads the Colorado National Guard cyber operations team. He says they are Colorado's first responders if the government or a company suffers a serious cyber crisis. "Our response to a cyber incident would be really no different than what we did with the flooding in 2013 where we put soldiers on the ground to help with security," Rhodes said.
