Using A Cyber Range as an Ongoing Teaching Tool
One of the biggest benefits of a Cyber Range is the ability to measure and assess the security skills of your team.
For practitioners, Cyber Ranges are a no brainer - they provide a fun and engaging way for team members of all skill levels to understand more about common security threats needed to thwart hackers, whether they are just getting started, or are a seasoned professional looking to round out their skill set. The result is an immersive, real-time, experience that helps teams improve their abilities by comparing their scores against gained knowledge and each other.
From a leadership perspective, putting the plans in place to make those improvements can be rather difficult. Requiring the same training for all team members is often inefficient, being too general for seasoned security specialists, too advanced for less experienced team members, and are potentially focused on the wrong range of topics.
The CMD+CTRL and Training Combination
To help security team leaders address this issue, Security Innovation provides a Cyber Range platform, CMD+CTRL in addition to training courses that go hand-in-hand with the immersive learning experience of the cyber range. Experienced Customer Success Managers (CSMs) help craft customized training paths to improve a team’s training efficiency.
By combining a Cyber Range with training and CSM guidance, leaders quickly gain the ability to:
Access out of the box reporting to understand performance at an individual and team level
Work with CSMs to generate custom reports based on needs of their team
Further work with CSMs to map those results into individual and team learning paths, enabling immediately actionable education opportunities
Execute on plans for ongoing education and assessments through a variety of Cyber Range, CBT, ILT and other training options
Gain from the wisdom of Security Innovation team members who work with similar engineering and security groups to understand what methods and approaches work best
Addressing Different Team Requirements
We understand that every team’s requirements are different. With some, general awareness and annual training is sufficient. For others, there is a need for constant deep training across multiple teams, ensuring they always have security on the top of their minds.
Our CMD+CTRL cyber range combined with a full library of online training courses are specifically aimed to help software development teams write secure code, assist IT Infrastructure teams to implement security controls, and train end-users on common security threats.
