In an effort to increase service-wide awareness about cyber security, the Marine Corps has garnered the help of civilian experts in the field. The new Cyber Auxiliary will be responsible for training, educating, advising and mentoring Marines “to keep pace with constantly evolving cyber challenges,” the service said in a May 13 announcement. While they can assist in instructional activities and simulations, these volunteers cannot take part in actual cyber missions. They will be selected and screened carefully before admission into the auxiliary. Once in, they will not wear Marine uniforms or be required to adhere to the service’s fitness and grooming standards. Interested persons who believe they can help can email CyberAux@usmc.mil.
