Elbit Systems’ subsidiary, CYBERBIT, won a contract to supply its CYBERBIT Range platform to the Cyber Security Training Range (CSTR) of Maryland, LLC, a hands-on cyber-security training center for IT and SCADA security professionals in the US.
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 work will be performed during the year 2017.
The CSTR of Maryland provides a unique approach to cyber-security training, enabling the entire security and business team to practice the incident-response workflow in hyper-realistic settings that mimic the trainee's actual work environment. It allows teams to respond faster and more effectively to complex and advanced attacks, such as ransomware, and to perform better as a team. 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.
