Transcripts - National Security Trip for LInkedIN

  • 1. Kelsie Hancock Norwich University U.S. Security Policy Professor Dart Thalman Spring 2015 _____________________________________________________________________________ _ This past spring, I had the opportunity to participate in a classroom-prepared simulation in Washington, DC, during my spring break. A number of alumni as well as my professor organized the simulation. The purpose of the course was to give students an opportunity to play various roles of the government in terms of government agencies, departments, and state actors. We were then able to research our assigned roles and work together to develop a brief to the “simulation” President of the United States on how to combat the current crisis. The information was hypothetical and covered no classified information, but it gave us the opportunity to understand the workings of our government on a daily basis, but specifically in times of crisis. We focused specifically on cyber security and the importance of creating awareness of the issue and encouraging the increased education of the subject. Like physical security, cyber security is just as important. The United States has identified its need for minds who can increase our cyber security, and that can be proven with factual based evidence from the Sony attacks just this past year, as well as the Target issue, and many others. By participating in this class, I was able to understand national security on a deeper level; I have learned more about our country than I probably would have learned on my own; and I was able to learn how to work with military and civilians at the same time with different backgrounds, minds, and levels of training.
