“Will there be a shortage of cybersecurity professionals in 2023?”

Analyst Jon Oltsik asked a similar question around 2010. After 12 years, there has been no fix to the issue despite the efforts by companies along the way.

The lack of professionals with the required validated skills and competence is both a quantitative and qualitative issue. Since an organization’s cybersecurity stature corresponds to its cybersecurity team’s competence, the acquisition, retention, and appropriate training of that workforce is a decisive factor in protection against modern cybercrimes.

In pursuit of empowering organizations to achieve that, CYBER RANGES Corp. has developed a next-generation experiential learning, threat simulation, and cyber resilience acceleration and validation platform.

CYBER RANGES is at the forefront of developing and offering ISO 27001-certified nextgeneration cyber range platforms and services, by leveraging two decades of experience in the domain. CYBER RANGES combines a myriad of components–user interaction, competence assessment, attack emulators, infrastructure builder, instructor tools, and more–into one innovative product that enables businesses to improve the human component of cybersecurity and bolster their cyber resilience.

Cybersecurity talent is the cornerstone of cybersecurity resilience, and hands-on learning and training prove highly effective to prepare cyber responders ready for action. In line with that, CYBER RANGES provides a growing library of labs and practical environments through which cybersecurity professionals develop their competencies with experiential learning across many cybersecurity domains and career paths.

CYBER RANGES creates high-fidelity interactive environments that replicate an organization’s ICT, OT, IoT, mobile and physical systems, applications, and infrastructures and execute simulated attacks, user activities, the internet, third-party services, and other auxiliary factors with which an organization may deal.

CYBER RANGES simulates cyberattacks, to which cybersecurity professionals respond, putting their skills to the test, and corroborating their competence. Trainees can learn in a self-study or instructor-led fashion working on a comprehensive library of content from CYBER RANGES and its partners. Organizations can identify skill gaps and devise skilling and reskilling strategies to address them.

By simulating and responding to cyberattacks, organizations validate their incident detection and response capability and ultimately their cyber resilience.
“Our high-fidelity simulated environments provide the realism that security professionals require to validate their skills and that businesses need to substantiate their cyber resilience,” says Dr. Almerindo Graziano, CEO of CYBER RANGES.

Unlike existing platforms that offer no leeway to customize simulated environments (closed-box products), CYBER RANGES offers a groundbreaking cyber ranging platform. CYBER RANGES enables clients to scale and customize the experiential content, including virtual machines, attacks, simulations, user emulation, assessments, and more, in accordance with their specific cybersecurity objectives, requirements, and operational workflows. These functionalities are of immense value to CIOs, security analysts, and computer and information scientists across all industries–especially in the government and military sectors–who can train their cybersecurity professionals to address unique challenges.

CYBER RANGES has illustrated its expertise in product customization and scalability. Among many deployments for various government entities and central banks, CYBER RANGES has shown its technology uniqueness when implementing a private cloud used to train over a thousand professionals as part of a national competence-building and reskilling program. The platform replicated contemporary IT/OT security threats and their impact on various industries. CYBER RANGES has enabled numerous organizations to organize large-scale nationwide cybersecurity exercises, collaborate with other entities on critical infrastructure, and test their ability to respond to threats.

Elected by MITRE Engenuity as its cyber-range-ofchoice for the MITRE ATT&CK Defender™ and Purple Teaming 2.0 training programs, CYBER RANGES’ trailblazing platform paves the way for businesses to embrace the associated technologies and proactively avert current and emerging cyber threats.
