Security Leaders Use Ranges & Simulation to Improve Their Security Posture



Would you board a plane if you knew the pilot got all As in flight school? Probably yes, but what if you learned that the pilot got all "A"s , but this was their first time actually flying a plane, and that they never went through any flight simulation training? You’d likely turn around and walk back to the terminal.


Just as surgeons must complete a residency, and pilots must undergo flight simulation, cyber defenders should be held to the same standard. Attendees will learn how simulation is quickly becoming a new standard in cybersecurity and how to leverage it when hiring, measuring risk and preparedness, and improving and maintaining security teams’ skills as the threat landscape becomes more complex.


Security leaders are now starting to understand that advanced technologies and processes aren’t enough to ensure an organization is truly prepared to face any threat, but that the last line of defense (the PEOPLE) must be prepared to detect and remediate a threat before it becomes an incident. This can be done using cyber ranges and other advanced simulation technologies, paired with a system that measures the learning and progress of cyber defenders.
