Computer simulations are of great importance in the field of cybersecurity. Simulations are useful as components of network security software and in training exercises for security professionals. They also work well  as software aids designed for network users.

Most cybersecurity professional believe that the benefits for organizations deploying cyber threat simulation scenarios are substantial.

By considering what to do before a cyber attack, organizations can prepare suitable responses based on the inherent capabilities within the organization. This may lead to efficiency and cost savings before an organization attempts to procure external products and services that duplicate existing capabilities.

Developing cyber attack mitigation strategy will hopefully identify gaps in an organization’s existing cyber defenses since few organization have full proof cyber attack protection. Following gap exposure, it behooves organizations to undertake an in-depth analysis of all cybersecurity vulnerabilities and make improvements where necessary.

Cyber threat simulation is really all about implementing better defenses pre-emptively rather than in the midst of a cyber attack.

There are various tools an organization can use to conduct cyber threat simulations. Simulation software for example is particularly useful for addressing domain characteristics of cybersecurity dynamics, which are fundamentally human and adversarial, encompassing a range of attacker, defender and user interactions.

Network simulations that include high-fidelity models of users, attackers, and/or defenders may be employed for running wargame training scenarios with realistic traffic and user-generated vulnerabilities. Data collection and analysis from running these simulations provides the means to study how various changes in tools, security restrictions, and training can affect overall network security.

The importance to shareholder value of preventing a cyber attack is immeasurable. A cyber attack creates a number of problems for every organization, including:

  • Lost service and sales
  • Increase in costs of remediation and retrospective measures
  • Less attractive assets
  • Brand de-valued
  • Reduced confidence among customer and stakeholders
