From Pandas To Unicorns: Using Artificial Environments To Solve Problems

Presented by

Peter Hay Lead Instructor, SimSpace; Sharon Smith, Moderator

About this talk

With successful cyber-attacks and breaches at an all-time high, a continually increasing cybersecurity workforce gap, and the specter of the “great resignation,” organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to hire and retain sufficiently experienced cybersecurity professionals. When faced with a dwindling giant panda population in the late 1900s, conservationists the world over poured their time and effort into restoring the population from its critical lows. The use of artificial environments gave the pandas the stimulation and experience necessary to return their species from the brink of extinction. Similarly, our industry faces a species on the brink, the cyber unicorn. They are under threat from burnout, headhunters, and other natural and artificial phenomena. On September 27, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific we will explore real-world case studies on how large organizations are using cyber ranges to combat team burnout, build practical expertise, and assess readiness. Topics covered include Red-, Blue-, and Purple-team events, automated user behavior, and threat presentation - manual and automated.
