Cyber Ranges provide hands on training that is immediately applicable to the day to day tasks of a SOC analyst and unlike other training options, they allow a team to work together and learn key lessons for an effective team response.
Competing for Cybersecurity Technical Talent and Leading in Security: The Cyber Range-Exercise Opportunity
Cyber Ranges are used by leading cybersecurity practitioners to train and develop individual and team skills. They provide the real life, hands-on-keyboard incident response challenges and we expect they will become much more common in the coming years. The ACSC has build a cyber range program to create a network of peer responders who can exercise together, share experiences and insights, and adjust their incident response plans.
ACSC has been running cyber exercises on a cyber range, researching how ranges are being used by the military and big banks, and recommending organizations use them for skill and team development. This will be a series of posts explaining our experience and research findings.
