A mad scramble to be the nation's hub for cyber security is going on right now between cities across the country. This hundred billion dollar a year industry is only growing, so where does San Antonio stand?

The 24th Air Force cyber command is located in San Antonio, and boasts more than 5,400 cyber warriors and 11,000 reservists ready to "conduct or support,  24-hour, global cyberspace operations."


The University of Texas at San Antonio is collaborating on an  $800,000 grant from the federal government for cyber security research.

The sizable contribution from the Federal Emergency Management Agency isn’t going to student programs, instead it's going to the National Cyber Security Preparedness Consortium, a joint venture between UTSA -- which is the lead -- Texas A&M, Memphis University, University of Arkansas and Norwhich University.


October is Cyber Security Awareness month, and to reach out to the community, UTSA’s Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security offered a month-long program to educate people who use computers at home, businesses and organizations.

The community seminars are in plain, non-technical language, stressing current issues and solutions.
