Is Your Team Prepared for a Cyber Attack? Get Ready with CyberRange Training

June 30, 2014 - 1 Comment

The fire alarm went off in my building again, but fortunately, it was only a drill. By now, we are all used to the periodic fire drills for emergency preparedness in our workplaces. But have you ever wondered if there is a similar exercise possible for a cyber attack? The same logic applies. Your team will be better prepared to handle a disaster if they are trained for it.

Seeing is believing: Today I am excited to share this video from our Cisco Korea team that showcases Cisco CyberRange.

Cybersecurity threats pose a serious challenge, and there is nothing better than having a simulated environment that is adapted to the specific threats of your industry or vertical market. Many of the renowned standards for security call for similar training and exercises, which are sometimes referred to as “Red Team” and “Blue Team” exercises.

Cybersecurity standards enable organizations to practice safe security techniques in order to minimize the number of successful cybersecurity attacks. These guidelines provide general outlines as well as specific techniques for implementing cybersecurity. For certain standards, it is possible to obtain cybersecurity certification by an accredited body. There can be many advantages to obtaining certification, including the ability to get cybersecurity insurance.

Cisco CyberRange is a virtual environment that is used for cyberwarfare training and cybertechnology development. It provides tools that help strengthen the stability, security and performance of cyber infrastructures and IT systems. So start your Cisco Cybersecurity journey today by exploring more information about Cisco Cyber Threat Defense Solution.

  1. Excellent Video

    The takeaway is ‘to catch a thief one needs to be a thief’ (with a conscience of course )…

    From my 16 years in and out of data center, security breaches are increasingly human errors / insider jobs as compared to cyberattacks. If Data Center need to be secured, they need to be paperless as well ( any one inside a datacenter knows well how many passwords are stuck with a sticker right under the switches )… All it takes is one disgruntled employee with brains to take it out…

    Again great video ( should touch upon human aspect of security too )

    I bet you have know idea how many walk around with privileged bare text passwords…. ( a sniffer / wireshark is all one needs )
