Cyber Threat Simulation Training

Cyber threat simulation training is a way to accurately replicate an organization’s IT setup and test how your company responds to simulated cyber-attacks.

Experts in cyber threat simulation believe that by replicating your environment, you can effectively “war-game” against potential attacks in realistic scenarios.

The benefits to an organization by implementing cyber threat simulations are substantial. For example, companies can gain crucial insights from cyber threat simulation data. This knowledge can be used to improve and guide training as well as used to gain insights about how and where to invest in IT security.

Additionally, cyber threat simulations help test cybersecurity strategies and new technology from a safe place. In other words, you can test out a realistic simulation of your IT networks rather than damaging the networks themselves.

Cyber range training can also be used to test new staff or be used during interviews to ensure new candidates have the right skills or mindset for important security roles.

Proactively, cyber threat simulation can be used to identify weaknesses and reactively it can provide education and training using “what if” scenarios. Ultimately when new threats are introduced the ability of the organization to respond is significantly enhanced.

Many cybersecurity experts believe it’s a powerful teaching tool to get top managers out of their comfort zones to feel the stress of making decisions in a cyber-attack is a powerful teaching tool.

The simulation approach, which is gaining traction in commercial and government organizations around the world, is often patterned on war games used by the Department of Defense. The aim is to confront top managers with what feels like a real situation in which they are required to make decisions relevant to their roles.

Cyber Threat Simulation Training Course by Tonex

Cyber Threat Simulation Training covers principles of cyber threats, advanced cyber warfare and threat simulation principles. Cyber Threat Simulation Training is split into multiple parts consisting of basic cybersecurity, advanced cybersecurity, principles of cyber threat and hands-on threat simulation exercises.

Gain an overview of the cyber threats and learn how to simulate, test and evaluate various global threats using your cyber systems. Cyber Threat Simulation Training course includes the perspectives of the Department of Defense (DoD) and industry cyber threat simulation and evaluates practitioners on their knowledge and skills and cover roles, responsibilities, processes, procedures, methods and tools to simulate cyber threats effectively in the cyber space.

Cyber Threat Simulation will train you and your team in the tactical, operational, and strategic level cyber threat modeling and simulation skills. Learn how your security team, threat hunting, incident response more efficient, accurate and effective.
