Washington: The US Air Force Space Command will add 1,000 new people in its team of cyber professionals for the 2014 fiscal year, the American Forces Press Service reported.
The 1,000 people will represent over 15 percent of the current team strength, Xinhua said.
US Air Force Gen. William Shelton, commander of the Air Force Space Command, said the 1,000 people will be tapped into the cyber business in over two years beginning 2014.
