Cyber Range Training Program

A cyber range is a hands-on training facility that provides virtualized hyper-immersive, experiential training where individuals and teams receive instruction on how to respond to and defend real-world cyber security attacks in a simulated, virtual environment. CRS uses a fully licensed enterprise network from vendors such as Microsoft, McAfee, Palo Alto, Check Point, Splunk among others. The range is both NICE and MITRE ATT&CK Framework-compliant and offers the opportunity to experience, identify, isolate, and remediate real-world malware attacks such as the ransomware attack WannaCry. 

In partnership with Cyber Range Solutions Inc. (CRS), our range features Cyberbit, which is the most widely deployed cybersecurity training and simulation platform. Through Fitchburg State’s training programs, you will engage in individual and group simulations to provide credible and relevant training.
