About The Simulator

All aspects of our lives, economic strength, and national infrastructure depend on a stable, safe, and strong cyberspace. We rely on all kinds of networks to communicate and travel, power our homes, run our economy, and provide national services. Yet cyber intrusions and attacks have increased dramatically over the last decade, exposing sensitive personal and business information, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy. Cyber-attacks come in many different forms, threats and domains – computers, internal networks, web networks, SAAS, databases, and HLS (cameras, video access control) control of processing systems, industrial machinery and more.

The suggested methodology presents shortly the process of training in the cyber arena.

Thanks to the partnership with Ariel Cyber Innovation Center in Israel, the Black Sea Academy for National Security operates a unique simulator (trainer) based on the technology of Cyberbit, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems, which is associated with the Computer Sciences Department of Ariel University.

The simulator constitutes practical training for cyber teams who deal with cyber warfare and defense, SOC information security experts, and network management and administrators. In hands-on training exercises, participants encounter advanced attack scenarios in a realistic and secure environment, under the guidance of the best Israeli cyber experts.

In addition to practical expertise, training increases organizational efficiency for resolving incidents, improves self-confidence, and benefits the team’s work. The simulator enables comprehensive training for cyber security at various levels on IT and SCADA networks, and in a variety of operating systems – Windows, Linux and more.

This training is designed to prepare and accustom the trainees in encountering complex cyber incidents, thus strengthening and increasing the efficiency of the defense array in the cyber field, as they experience situations taken from reality without the risks that are likely to occur in real-life conditions.
