  • Jack Voltaic to be virtual this year

    By Maj. Lisa Beum
    ACI Public Affair Officer

    The Army Cyber Institute is pleased to announce its first-ever virtual Jack Voltaic experiment, a regionally focused exercise that focuses on cities’ abilities to respond to a cyberattack. This is ACI’s third iteration of the Jack Voltaic series and it will take place virtually Sept. 22 and 24, for the cities of Charleston and Savannah, respectively.
    “By conducting Jack Voltaic 3.0 virtually, the ACI and our partners have an excellent opportunity to capitalize on our digital connectivity, strengthen our ties ahead of a potential multi-sector cyber event that impacts critical infrastructure and still meet all of our original objectives,” said Lt. Col. Doug Fletcher, the Army Cyber Institute’s lead for Jack Voltaic.
    In 2016, ACI executed its first major city, multi-sector, public-private cyber exercise called Jack Voltaic. Read More

  • Keller Corner: Update on Coronavirus

    KACH establishes parking lot check-in initiative
    Keller Army Community Hospital has established a “parking lot check-in” initiative in an effort to prevent the spread of illness and to facilitate social distancing by reducing the amount of beneficiaries in the waiting room.
    As Keller clinics begin a staged re-opening of services and appointments, hospital traffic will increase proportionally.
    The parking lot check-in initiative expands Keller waiting rooms by allowing routinely scheduled patients to remain comfortably in their vehicles in the Keller parking lot until their health care worker is ready to receive them for their appointment.
    This method is voluntary and may not be suitable for every appointment type. The option will be explained to patients during appointment booking.
    Patients who elect to check in via parking lot check-in will be instructed to call the front desk of their respective clinic immediately upon arrival at the Keller parking lot. Read More

  • Keller Corner: Update on Coronavirus

    By Robert K. Lanier
    Public Affairs Officer, Keller Army Community Hospital

    It’s summertime … and after teleworking and/or isolating at home, “you want to get away,” or you’re feeling a little more comfortable with the decision to travel away from your local community.
    Travel — specifically in states with high rates of COVID-19 — increases your chances of getting infected and spreading illness.
    Staying home remains the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick.
    But if you are thinking about traveling away from your local community, visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-in-the-us.html for information on travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read More
