The journey to build and strengthen the capacity of the next generation of Cyber Security professionals is continuing in Romania. CYBER RANGES by Silensec in collaboration with Cybershare Academy will once again be powering up a national initiative. This initiative has been designed as part of a deliberate effort to scout, educate and encourage the pupils from several Romanian secondary schools with interest in Information and Communication Technology, to become the next generation of cyber security professionals through the provision of a live hands-on situational experience.
Announced on Oct. 31st during the European Cyber Security Month, this CTF has been held on 7th November 2020, with 68 teams of up to 3 members. The Schools interested in their students participating in this CyberSchool CTF, nominated Mentors that validated all the students enrolling on the CYBER RANGES platform. This ensured control and adherence to the GDPR and minors protection standards.
The CTF has been a collaborative between Cybershare Academy and Silensec, ADeSE Association, Romania’s National Cyber Security Incident Response Center and Cyberint National Center, with the National College of Informatics “Tudor Vianu” who have coordinated the activities.
CYBER RANGES by Silensec has enjoyed massive success in different regions all over the world, most especially when it comes to CTFs and cybersecurity competition formats for universities, schools and other organizations and government agencies.
Cyber ranges have been around for years, mostly within the realms of the military sector. Recent technology advancements have sparked the development of next-generation cyber ranges, accessible to all organizations, big and small, and capable of delivering well beyond what possible via even the traditional on-site military cyber ranges. Just like any other technology innovation, cyber ranges too follow a curve of user adoption characterized by failed expectations, early adopters and an enlightenment phase.
A leading cyber range authority and innovator, Dr. Al Graziano champions the deployment of next-generation cyber ranges, their key fields of application and examples of how governments and organizations around the world are currently using them for large-scale human capital management and cyber resilience assessment. CYBER RANGES by Silensec powered up the recently concluded ITU 2020 Global Cyber Drill.
Through CYBER RANGES the Cybershare Romanian Schools CTF participants have ripped the benefits of cyber range technology innovation by being educated early adopters.
