MN Cyber Range: The Ultimate Platform to Learn Incident Response and Handling
Faisal Kaleem & Corey Blommel
MN Cyber Range is an advanced military grade hyper-realistic simulation platform for training information security professionals, assessing incident response processes, and testing new technologies. A cyber range recreates the experience of responding to a cyber-attack by replicating the security operations center (SOC) environment, the organizational network and the attack itself. As a result, it enables hands-on training in a controlled and secure environment. Attendees will learn the fundamental skills to handle and respond to realistic computer security incidents in an enterprise network environment. They will understand various underlying principles and techniques for detecting and responding to current and emerging computer security threats through hands-on experience (Blue team vs. Automated Red team). After attending the workshop, the participants will enhance their understanding regarding how to effectively function as a member of an incident response team, communicate and report incidents, and much more.
