The San Antonio Chamber’s Cybersecurity Industry Council recently met at the newly launched San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology (SAMSAT) as part of its efforts to expand the area’s development and support of the local cyber security industry.
The chamber's Cybersecurity Industry Council members attended their recent bi-monthly meeting at SAMSAT at Port San Antonio, which houses a collection of never-before-seen technological artifacts. SAMSAT was initially created through artifacts donated by David Monroe with plans to provide students, professionals and San Antonio visitors with a learning opportunity.
SAMSAT President and CEO James Castro told City Council members the museum will expand its after school and teacher development programs and its collection themes and displays. Castro said the displays will feature early communication devices, cybersecurity, early innovations by Thomas Edison, and collections from the San Antonio area.
One of the Cybersecurity Industry Council's projects has been working with Port San Antonio to support cyber and intel companies and defense missions located at the port.
During the recent meeting, City Council members also received the 24th Air Force and Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s update on their Cyber Proving Ground (CPG). The CPG works to address any cyberspace operational challenges and getting feedback from Air Force cyberspace operators to developers and relevant research efforts.
