Baltimore Cyber Range, a facility to train cybersecurity professionals in strategies through threat simulations, opened Thursday in downtown Baltimore.
Gov. Larry Hogan called it the first stand-alone and hands-on training cybersecurity training center in the nation. The center, created by technology firm Cyberbit, based in Israel, opened in Spark Baltimore, a co-working center just north of the Inner Harbor. Hogan announced the center’s creation during his trade mission to Israel last September.
“It will provide the most-up-to date training for our cyber force, further demonstrating that Maryland is truly the cyber capital of America,” Hogan said Thursday in an announcement.
The Cyber Range will use a platform developed by Cyberbit, which develops simulated training products. Cyberbit’s Range Platform gives security teams hands on training in realistic settings and allows them to keep pace with evolving cyber threats.
