Deepening its commitment to enhancing cyber security in India, Cisco India has inaugurated its Cyber Range Lab in Gurgaon, India. The Cisco Cyber Range Lab aims to provide highly specialized technical training workshops to help security staff build the skills and experience necessary to combat new-age risks.
As cyber security threats have become more complex, targeted, and persistent, modern cyber defenses require proactive security operations run by highly trained staff with the experience and expertise to detect and disrupt sophisticated threats. Cisco Cyber Range will immerse people in simulated real-world cyber-attacks to train them on how to properly prepare for, respond to, and manage a broad variety of threats. This experience can be leveraged by companies, academicians, customers, and government and their security teams.
The lab will use 200–500 different types of malware, ransomware, and 100 attack cases to deliver realistic cyber-attack experiences. The facility can be accessed virtually from any part of the world and will be a living lab of technical knowledge for network security and how to mitigate cyber-attacks. As part of the Cyber Range experience, Cisco has designed real-world scenarios to help clients experience, defend against, and shut down cyber-attacks. The scenarios will also help train organizations with the necessary steps required to respond quickly in the wake of an incident, right from addressing a basic threat to a highly sophisticated one, monitoring and analyzing malware infections and providing actionable information and intelligence to customers.
