Cyber-security will be the focus of a new squadron coming to Scott Air Force Base.  Over the next two years, a 16-million-dollar investment will bring 300 jobs to the base for a program supporting the Air Force's efforts to protect data traffic and computer security. 

Democrat Congressman Bill Enyart said the selection of Scott for one of two new cyber-protection squadrons is a huge win for the base and the St. Louis region.
