5411 - Train as You Fight

Tuesday, September 26
4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

Are virtualized cybersecurity training environments realistic enough? Developers of training content often find they must sacrifice realism in order to satisfy resource and/or time constraints. Additional factors that can decrease the fidelity of a training environment include the absence of technologies that are difficult to virtualize and the use of isolated networks meant to prevent malware from escaping. In this talk, members of the Workforce Development Team at the Software Engineering Institute will discuss and demonstrate some of the technologies they have developed in order to produce more realistic training environments. The tools discussed in this session cover the areas of user simulation, malware generation, wireless emulation, internet simulation and more.
