RPI Group has opened up a new branch of its Cybersecurity Division at the UMW Center for Education and Research in Dahlgren, VA. The new branch gives RPI the ability to host cybersecurity training in the high-tech classrooms available at the Center.
Previously, RPI worked with Team Cyber to host cybersecurity training. The new classrooms in Dahlgren allow RPI to offer training within their own space. The Dahlgren office is a step in the right direction as RPI brings more of its cybersecurity training in-house for 2014. RPI chose Dahlgren in order to expand its Cybersecurity Division to the Navy.
Securing the nation’s cyberspace capabilities and infrastructure is critically important to the Department of Defense and other government agencies. In February of 2013, President Obama issued Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. This order is the first major legislation since 2002 in respect to expanding our nation’s cybersecurity presence. The military also has plans to expand its cybersecurity capabilities. In 2013, the Navy planned on bringing 800 cyber service members online, and adding an additional 1,000 over the next three years.
RPI Group recently launched the Cybersecurity Division on May 1, 2011 in Denver, CO. Since its launch, the Cybersecurity Division has expanded by working with the Marine Corps Network Operations and Security Center (MCNOSC) in Quantico, VA. RPI provides highly-qualified employees to work in the MCNOSC, as well as offering training to the Marines and civilians that work within. The Cybersecurity division is led by Mr. William Rybczynski (CISSP, CISM, NSA IAM/IEM, Security+). Mr. Rybczynski (Bill) is a 20-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps, whose last assignment was as Information Assurance Chief of Information Assurance (C4), Headquarters, USMC. Since retiring 8 years ago, Bill has garnered exceptional industry experience in the DoD Cyber Security marketplace.
Founded in 2001, RPI Group, Inc. is a privately-held, service disabled, veteran-owned company providing a variety of tailored services including specialized program management, systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support to the National Security Community and the Defense Department, Federal government relations, undersea warfare subject matter expertise, and aviation systems engineering.
