The National CERT, on March 23, held a CyberRange platform training in RATEL’s premises for the students of the University of Belgrade School of Electrical Engineering. As part of the “Norway for You – Serbia” project, funded by the Kingdom of Norway and carried out by the United Nations Office for Project Services – UNOPS, CyberRange platform was donated with the purpose to provide a state-of-the-art technical training in the area of cyber security.
The work in the hyper realistic environment of a simulated cyber attack enables the trainees to efficiently improve their skills and react even before the attack happens, which constitutes one of the crucial aspects of cyber attack prevention in an ever more sophisticated and impenetrable world of cyber warfare.
The trainees were able to take part in cyber attack simulations and practice in a setting replicating an authentic work environment, providing an exceptional and realistic experience using Trojan Data Leakage scenario.
Participation in the trainings makes it possible for the attendees to improve their skills needed for the detection and recovery from cyber attacks, thus contributing to the maintenance of appropriate levels of knowledge and the development of the domaine-specific based skills necessary for an adequate response to new challenges in the cyber space.
The importance of these training courses is, beside the support to the academic sector, to promote the significance of information security among the young population.
