Benefits of Cyber Range

What is a Cyber Range

According to the European Cybersecurity Organization (ECSO) a cyber range is a platform for the development, delivery and use of interactive simulation environments. A simulation environment is a representation of an organization’s ICT, OT, mobile and physical systems, applications and infrastructures, including the simulation of attacks, users and their activities and of any other Internet, public or third party services, which the simulated environment may depend upon. Typical use cases of a cyber range include security testing, security research, competence building, development of cyber capabilities, competence assessment, organization of national cyber competitions and much more.
