CyberSolace is proud to have been nominated as a member of the first group of participants in the European Union pilot project for building a cyber range platform.  The event took place in Italy on 5-Nov-19 right behind the beautiful vicinity of the famous leaning tower of Pisa <see here>. main aim is to create a complete, integrated, and fully customisable cybersecurity training solution incorporating an independent cyber range platform.  In a nutshell, Cyber Ranges provide a multipurpose virtual environment in which organisations can test critical capabilities and reveal how effectively they integrate people, processes, and technology to protect their strategic information, services, and assets.  By facilitating high-fidelity simulations, they can improve stability, security and performance of cyberinfrastructures and information technology (IT), operations technology (OT), and industrial control systems (ICS). Because of their ability to represent real-world cyber threat scenarios in a virtual environment, they also present an opportunity to enhance organisational training capabilities.

One of the primary objectives of the nominated external participants in the pilot workshop was to provide useful feedback on the cyber range platform and share their insight and business contexts to help shape the development trajectory of the platform going forwards.

CyberSolace also had the pleasure of being introduced to some other larger scale projects that are also funded by the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 initiative.  Those other projects CONCORDIA, ECHO, SPARTA and CyberSec4Europe, are the four winning pilot projects of the 2018 Horizon 2020 cybersecurity call “establishing and operating a pilot for a European Cybersecurity Competence Network and developing a common European Cybersecurity Research & Innovation Roadmap” <see more here>.
