  Elbit Systems’ subsidiary CYBERBIT was awarded a contract to supply its CYBERBIT Range platform to the Cyber Security Training Range (CSTR) of Maryland, a hands-on cyber-security training centre for IT and SCADA security professionals.

CYBERBIT’s training and simulation platform will  serve as the launching capability of  the CSTR , instructing cyber-security professionals how to protect national assets and infrastructure against cyber attacks. The contract, in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems, will be performed during the year 2017.

Leveraging the capabilities of the CYBERBIT Range, the CSTR of Maryland enables the entire security and business team to practice the incident-response workflow in hyper-realistic settings that mimic the trainee’s actual work environment. Thus, it allows teams to respond faster and more effectively to complex and advanced attacks, such as ransomware, and to perform better as a team.

Centrally located in Baltimore, close to the federal government’s cyber-related activities, CSTR of Maryland will offer cyber-security professionals in both private and public sectors the convenience of training with the most current cyber warfare strategies.

 

“Public sector organizations manage highly sensitive infrastructure and cannot afford to have the staff’s first encounter with a threat occur during attacks,” Adi Dar, General Manager of CYBERBIT, said. “By training and simulating the response process in advance, security staff can dramatically improve their performance. We are looking forward to helping CSTR create top-notch security experts by means of the Range platform.” (Photos: Elbit Systems)
