Elbit Systems announced it has provided Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) with a Cyber Security Simulator enabling users, individually or as a group, to locate, respond and prevent cyber attacks while experiencing simulated network protection conditions. The simulator provided to ST Electronics will also present various network protection scenarios, conduct follow-up debriefing and evaluate the results.
The cyber simulator for civilian applications, an Elbit Systems development, is based on the company’s extensive experience in cyber protection for its military customers – Elbit Systems’ cyber simulators are already in use with its own customers.
Yair Cohen, head of Intelligence and Cyber Solutions at Elbit Systems’ Intelligence and Electro-optics (Elop” said, “The cyber threat on infrastructures is constantly increasing, with significant potential impacts, and we are pleased to contribute in improving the capability of civilian entities in Singapore to face this imminent threat."
Elbit’s cybersecurity simulators include the CyberShield NCDSTM Training System, which offers a virtual training environment designed to train cybersecurity professionals and decision makers in securing national military and civilian networks against all forms of cyber attacks.
Conducted in a generic, isolated and secured environment, the training system offers a scalable and realistic training experience. Trainees are exposed to simulated attack scenarios and security breaches injected into networks with real-world traffic simulation in order to improve their hands-on skills. Each session concludes with a full performance evaluation and debriefing.
ST Electronics specializes in the design and development of advanced info-assurance and digital authentication products, for an integrated cyber defense framework. It designs, builds, implements and operates cybersecurity operation centers for both government and commercial organizations.
The company set up the DigiSAFE Cyber Security Center to help address the shortfall of cybersecurity professionals. The DigiSAFE center offers cybersecurity training to help enhance and strengthen the operational competencies of cybersecurity professionals in their response to real-life cyber threats and cyber attacks.
