To meet the continuously evolving cybersecurity threats facing the United States, the Defense Department established what is now known as the DoD Cyber Crime Center’s Cyber Training Academy in 1998 near Linthicum Heights, Maryland.

Today, DC3 functions as a designated federal cyber center and a DoD Center of Excellence for digital and multimedia forensics. DC3 operates under the Secretary of the Air Force Executive Agency.

“The academy provides valuable training, accessible virtually anywhere and at any time,” said Casey Szyper, Director of DC3 CTA. “A rigorous curriculum provides department personnel with the relevant knowledge and cutting-edge skills they need to meet mission goals.”
