Title: Breaking Stuff for Fun and Profit

Abstract: Cybersecurity is often seen as a set of defensive techniques and methodologies. But cybersecurity also means understanding how to break stuff and how other people break stuff (“for fun and profit”). Cyber Ranges, much like their physical counterparts, provide a perfect and safe environment to develop this particular set of skills. In particular, they allow the execution of cyber exercises of the highest quality that simulate cyber scenarios of real-world complexity. This seminar will introduce the main concepts related to Cyber Range systems. Then we provide the detail of two use cases together with our firsthand experience: the Unavox Cyber Range and the NATO Locked Shields exercise.
