Next Generation Cyber Ranges (NeXCyRa)
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Today, the importance of Cyber Security Training (CST) is unquestionable. As a consequence, the design and development of Cyber Ranges (CR) have become a necessity for many governments and organizations. Cyber Ranges are environments that offer tools and services to support Cybersecurity simulation and training experience. In other words, a Cyber Range allows reproduction of IT and/or OT systems execution in a real or simulated environment.
Cyber Range emulates real-world scenario involving complex, large-scale and/or domain-specific infrastructures such as IoTs (Internet of Things) and/or Industrial IoT (IIoT). Such environments reveal to be quite convenient to practice skills related to systems pen-testing, hardening and/or defending. It allows also for training in response to incidents and attacks mitigation.
The science discipline that designs and develops Cyber Ranges is still its infancy. However, the state of the arts is quickly growing boosted by the ever-increasing number of cyber attacks and the growing concern and preoccupation of governments about these threats.
The ambition of the workshop is to provide an interactive discussion space wherein the participants share their knowledge and understanding about scientific, technical and pedagogical approaches and methods about Cyber Ranges design, implementation and piloting.
