Cyber Threat Simulation Training

It’s estimated cybercrime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually by next year.

Many in the cyber community believe the best way to protect an organization from an attacker is to think and act like one.

This is the idea behind cyber threat simulation, a proactive cybersecurity approach pivoted from an attacker’s point-of-view. And many organizations are now realizing the value of this security strategy – that is, to the need to identify hidden threats and potential gaps across the network and remove them in advance before an attack is ever launched.

The payoff from cyber threat simulation is that by testing an organization’s security posture, many previously unknown vulnerabilities could be identified and resolved before cyber criminals discover them.

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, as well as software aids designed for network users.

Cognitive modeling can addresses multi-disciplinary cybersecurity challenges requiring cross-cutting approaches over the human and computational sciences, including:

  • Adversarial reasoning and behavioral game theory to predict attacker subjective utilities and decision likelihood distributions
  • Human factors of cyber tools to address human system integration challenges, estimation of defender cognitive states, and opportunities for automation
  • Dynamic simulations involving attacker, defender, and user models to enhance studies of cyber epidemiology and cyber hygiene
  • Training effectiveness research and training scenarios to address human cybersecurity performance, maturation of cybersecurity skill sets, and effective decision-making

There is a mushrooming presence of cyber threat simulation tools available. These platforms can provide organizations with a unique tool to use in their battle against today’s most sophisticated threats.

Cyber threat simulation solutions work by launching nonstop attacks against organizational security environments, simulating the techniques and attack paths most likely to be used in an attempted breach.

By running cyber-attack simulations in a controlled environment, these tools can identify vulnerabilities and gaps and then provide prioritized recommendations to help quickly close them. And, with the ability to deploy these automated platform remotely, cyber threat simulations are even more realistic and useful for organizations.
