Reinforcing its ability to conduct military operations in cyberspace, Spain’s Joint Cyber-Defence Command recently completed extensive training using Indra’s CYBER RANGE solution, the company announced on 17 July.
Unlike other domains, attacks in cyberspace can occur continuously, without any formal declaration of hostilities. Sovereign states, criminal organisations and terrorist groups take advantage of any opportunity to spy, attack or obtain an economic benefit. Much of a country’s ability to protect itself and to deploy countermeasures depends directly on the state of readiness of its cyber intelligence experts.
In 2018, the Spanish Joint Cyber-Defence Command chose Indra’s solution to prepare collaborative cyber exercises, together with forces from several Ibero-American countries, with the aim of sharing knowledge and develop a better capability to respond to global attacks in a coordinated manner.
They also used it to conduct advanced training in forensic analysis techniques, which allow information and evidence to be gathered to help solve digital crimes. This intelligence capacity is vital to any analysis of the strategies being adopted by hostile actors and to limit the anonymity that allows them to operate with impunity.
In its ‘Academy’ mode, Indra’s solution combines theoretical study with the execution of real tests to ensure maximum levels of preparedness and to facilitate evaluation and monitoring of individual experts. Indra’s CYBER RANGE helps civil and military organisations to train their staff. The solution allows an exercise to be restarted at the point where it was left, accessing it remotely from any location.
Indra is a leading company in the fields of cyberdefense and cybersecurity that protects organizations and companies from all sectors and that has an extensive network of partners of companies, universities and research centers in whom they rely on to develop its training content.
