The Defence Forces CIS Corps personnel participate in a range of training and education courses with recognised academic institutions. The CIS Corps personnel also participate in a number of military and civilian cyber exercises with approved partners.

From an operational and security perspective it would be inappropriate to comment further on the cyber and network security capabilities of the Defence Forces other than to say that there is on-going and continued development of these capabilities within the Defence Forces.
