Regent University unveils new cyber range training center


THE ART CYBER RANGE TRAINING FACILITY AT REGENT UNIVERSITY IN VIRGINIA BEACH. (ANITA) WITH DATA BREACHES BECOMING A GROWING THREAT TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION — CYBER SECURITY IS BECOMING EVEN MORE IMPORTANT. 10 ON YOUR SIDE’S MARIELENA BALOURIS IS HERE WITH HOW THE NEW FACILITY CAN HELP. (MARIELENA) IT’S MAIN FUNCTION IS TO BE A TRAINING GROUND FOR STUDENTS, GIVING THEM HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE RESPONDING TO CYBER ATTACKS. (MARIELENA) AND THAT HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE COMES IN THE FORM OF SIMULATIONS. THE TECHNLOGY CAN SIMULATE CYBER ATTACKS BASED OFF OF REAL-WORLD EVENTS — AND THE STUDENTS WILL LEARN HOW TO RESPOND. IT’S THAT KIND OF TRAINING OFFICIALS BELIEVE CAN BE EFFECTIVE IN FIGHTING LIKE ANY COLLEGIATE COMPUTER LAB. BUT ONE LOOK AT THE MONITORS AND THE REAL-TIME TRACKING OF CYBER ATTACKS HAPPENING AROUND THE WORLD — YOU KNOW IT’S MUCH MORE THAN THAT. ADI DAR, CEO OF CYBERBIT STUDENTS AND THE PROFESSIONALS FROM ALL AROUND THE NATION AND THE STATE, AND TUTOR THEM ADI DAR IS THE CEO OF CYBERBIT, THE COMPANY THAT WORKED WITH REGENT UNIVERSITY TO CREATE THE CYBER RANGE. HE SAYS THERE ARE AT LEAST 200-THOUSAND JOBS IN CYBER SECURITY AROUND THE COUNTRY. AND VIRGINIA BEACH MAYOR WILL SESSOMS HOPE THIS CYBER RANGE KEEPS SOME JOBS HERE. MAYOR WILL SESSOMS VIRGINIA BEACH IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF A PROACTIVE AND AGGRESSIVE APPROACH TO SUPPORT THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES ESSENTIAL TO OUR EVER-CHANGING GLOBAL ECONOMY DAR CONNECTED WITH REGENT CHANCELLOR DR. PAT ROBERTSON BACK IN MAY. THEY WON’T SAY HOW MUCH THE PROJECT COST, BUT TOGETHER THEY BROUGHT ONE OF THE US’S LARGEST CYBER RANGES TO VIRGINIA BEACH. PAT ROBERTSON I WANT OUR STUDENTS TO BE EQUIPPED TO DEAL WITH THE WORLD AND I TIHNK THIS IS GOING TO PREPARE THEM IN A WAY THAT’S PROBABLY AS SIGNIFICANT AS WE’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO ROBERTSON SAYS TECHNOLOGY ISN’T HIS STRONG SUIT — THAT’S WHERE DAR COMES IN. DAR SAYS THE TECHNOLOGY SIMULATES HYPER-REALISTIC CYBER SCENARIOS THAT REGENT STUDENTS WILL LEARN TO FIGHT. ADI DAR, CEO OF CYBERBIT IF THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY SEE A MALWARE IS WHEN IT HITS THEM IN THE HEAD, IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE BEFORE THEY GRADUATE AND LEAVE READY TO TACKLE THE GROWING THREAT TO OUR CYBER SECURITY. (MARIELENA) IN SPRING 2018, REGENT WILL HOST A CYBER SUMMIT TO DISCUSS INNOVATION, POLICY, AND FUTURE CYBERSECURITY RISKS. WE’LL HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON THAT — AND HOW STUDENTS CAN GET INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM — ON WAVY DOT COM. I’M MARIELENA BALOURIS,
