Today, it still specializes in digital and multimedia forensics, or the identifying, recovering, preserving, and analyzing of evidence in digital devices. It also develops cyber forensic and ana- lytic tools. DC3 continues to offer spe- cialized cyber training. As such, it oper- ates the Cyber Training Academy, which
U.S. Cyber Command
trains DoD personnel who work to pro- tect the Pentagon’s information sys- tems from unauthorized use, including criminal, fraudulent, and foreign-intelli- gence efforts. According to its website, DC3 civilian employees work with highly skilled military and government person- nel “to solve the most demanding prob- lems facing our nation.” In other words, it offers jobs in cybersecurity that are challenging and rewarding.
