Cyber Warfare Meets Author Anthony Tata


 “How does a Brigadier General become a non-fiction writer?” According to Anthony J. Tata, “The question is how does a non-fiction writer become a Brigadier General?”

During a recent Lunch and Learn event at Gulf Coast State College, Anthony J. Tata, retired Brigadier General and author of Direct Fire, shared insightful stories about his adventures as a novelist, his time in the military, and his perspective on current world events.

This sold-out event sponsored The Gulf Coast State College Foundation and co-sponsors, Business Innovation Center and Veterans Business Outreach Center included GCSC students, active duty military, veterans, and other members of the community. 

While touring the Advanced Technology Center (ATC), Tata was able to visit behind the scenes with the GCSC’s Cyber Security students. He was impressed with the work and recognizes the value gained in the program. According to Tata, “the work that the Cyber Security students do is amazing because these students can help to teach the world about the Web.”

During a Q&A session, Tata was asked if any of his books would make it to the movie screen. Tata said, “Until my agent sign delivers a contract, the thought of a movie just stays an idea.”
