150 Fellows complete APOC 15-2
Gaining an expanded perception of regional security issues, 150 professionals completed Asia-Pacific Orientation Course 15-2 June 26 at the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.  Attendees gained an analysis of factors impacting regional security, specifically looking at factors within multiple sub-regions such as Oceania, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and South Asia.  "Given the size and complexity of the region, and its increasing interconnectedness, it’s critical that security practitioners in this domain are able to understand current and future security challenges,” said APOC course manager Cmdr. Alan Chace.  This is especially true, he said, in light of the region's ever evolving security environment.  APOC is a five-day course designed to provide an overview of regional trends in the socio-economic, political, defense, health and environmental arenas that drive the Asia-Pacific security environment.  To read more, click here.

TSC promotes strategic-level collaboration
Honing their abilities to cooperate on major international crises, 24 military and civilian security practitioners from 23 locations completed the Transnational Security Cooperation course (TSC 15-1) today at the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.  APCSS faculty challenged attending Fellows to collaborate on responses to an Ebola outbreak and cyber attacks against vital infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region.  Teams analyzed impacts on critical entities, such as economic, public health and governance sectors, and formed and documented response measures and potential solutions.
