Cyber Drill Training
A CyberDrill is a planned event during which an organization simulates cyberattacks, information security incidents and other types of disruption. With a CyberDrill we test the organization’s cyber capacity by measuring its ability to detect and respond to a security incident. Additionally, it measures the ability of responding appropriately to an incident, minimizing any related impact. More specifically, CyberDrill Simulations are delivered through different scenarios.
A scenario is a self-contained piece of content, which combines a storyline, an interactive infrastructure and applications, competency objectives, user activity, tasks to perform and challenges to deal with ancillary contextual information assets, and more. Since 2017 CYBER RANGES has been supporting the delivery of all the Regional CyberDrills organized by the United Nations’ International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in collaboration with national regulatory authorities all over the world. These CyberDrills have engaged thousands of delegates from national CERTs, critical infrastructure operators, financial and telecom institutions, and more.
Sample CyberDrills delivered by Silensec for the ITU have been held in:
2014 - Zambia
2015 - Egypt, Montenegro
2016 - Mauritius, Tunisia, Ecuador
2017 - Qatar, Tanzania, Moldova
2018 - Argentina, Azerbaijan, Ivory Coast, Moldova, Cyprus, Kuwait
2019 - Romania, Uganda, Malaysia, Oman
Benefits of Cyberdrills
=> Testing your organization’s ability and validating its plans to respond to security incidents.
=> Testing your organization’s Cyber Resilience.
=> Assessing the cyber capacity and capabilities of a SOC team.
=> Assessing the competence of your organization’s Red Team.
=> Complying with regulatory and best-practice requirements.
=> Testing the cyber proficiency of other Teams, e.g., Blue Team, DevOps, Comms, Legal.
=> Testing your team’s current skill set and identifying any gaps and areas for improvement.
=> Evaluating your team’s readiness and response reflexes against cyber-attacks.
=> Testing the coordination, communications and information sharing of internal and external teams, stakeholders, ecosystem partners, third parties and other entities.
=> Team building opportunities.
Choose from a wide range of realistic simulation environments.
From simple environments with just a few systems (VMs) to more complex environments with dozens of systems to allow teams with different roles to collaborate and/or compete against one another.
Customize your simulation environment.
Choose from an exhaustive library of commercial security systems and applications.
You may choose from pre-set environments, customize these or even replicate your full infrastructure.
Choose the attacks you want to simulate
From simple attacks exploiting a single vulnerability, to more complex, sophisticated attacks simulating advanced threat vectors and exploiting both human and technical vulnerabilities.
Choose the Difficulty Level
Turning each chosen attack into a search for the "needle in the haystack" by adding background user traffic, thousands of realistic event logs, multiple parallel attacks from different countries and much more depending on the skill levels of the participants.
USING CYBER RANGES FOR NATIONAL CYBERDRILLS
National CyberDrills are organized by a National Contact Point that brings together organizations from across its nation’s critical infrastructure. With CYBER RANGES CyberDrills organization becomes streamlined and National Authorities gain the ability to easily plan the cost-effective execution of CyberDrills at desired regular time-intervals (every year down to every term) and to even organize multiple CyberDrills by theme or industry sector.
CYBER RANGES CONTRIBUTES TO YOUR CYBERDRILLS WITH:
End-to-End CyberDrill workflow management
User registration and creation of teams
Design, development and delivery of the CyberDrill Scenarios
Assessment of skills, cyber capabilities and cyber resilience
Learning paths to skills gap and cyber capability shortage remediation
Library of CyberDrill Scenarios
Library of Attack Simulations to replicate the latest cyber threats
Seamless integration and support of Scenarios from Value-Added Third Parties
BENEFITS OF NATIONAL CYBERDRILLS
Evaluating readiness and response abilities to coordinated cyber-attacks across the country.
Assessing national cyber capabilities.
Raising awareness of the latest cyber threats.
Improving coordination, communications and sharing of cyber-threat intelligence among national stakeholders.
USING CYBER RANGES FOR YOUR CYBERDRILLS
With CYBER RANGES the National Authorities have an effective turnkey solution for the organization and delivery of all National CyberDrills. CYBER RANGES offers Authorities the opportunity to obtain measurable outcomes and actionable assessment towards the continuous development of skills, cyber power and improvement of your organizations’ cyber resilience. Through CYBER RANGES PORTABLE, a CyberDrill can be delivered to accommodate any location requirements (such as an oil rig, a military outpost, or a vessel at sea).
CORPORATE CYBERDRILLS AND TRAINING
CYBER RANGES can be used to address the security training needs of any organization through corporate CyberDrills, and to deliver company-specific, hands-on training scenarios over a highly realistic replica of its live IT, OT, ICS, IoT infrastructure. CyberDrills are used to assess the organization’s cyber capabilities and cyber resilience at regular intervals while also identifying gaps in specific security skills. Sample scenario types include:
RED TEAM VS BLUE TEAM
In this organizational scenario type players are divided into two teams, simulating respectively the attackers (red team) and the defenders (blue team). This scenario is ideal for testing and improving the communication and collaboration between an organization’s defence and attack teams.
In this scenario type participants are exposed to live attacks simulating different types of threat actors. The attacks are simulated automatically or live through the CYBER RANGES Injector Engine. This scenario is ideal for testing the detection and response capabilities of the SOC Team or for assessing the organization’s cyber resilience against specific cyber-attacks.
This scenario type can be used to assess a wide range of hands-on security skills by targeting different security roles within the organization. Suck key roles being: Penetration Tester, SOC analyst, Malware Analyst, Threat Hunter and more. Each Scenario Type can be easily built on the replica of a specific corporate environment in order to train teams for identifying and responding to specific attack vectors.
A Virtual CyberDrill is an online CyberDrill with no need for a physical venue to hold activities in. CYBER RANGES is the ideal platform for the delivery of Virtual CyberDrills with a great number of participants, well above the typical industry average of 10-20 participants each time.
