The new range design will considerably enhance NATO’s cyber, electronic warfare and intelligence, test, rehearsal, and mission refinement capabilities and promote effective cooperation and collaboration of state of the art tools, techniques, and procedures (TTP) to provide NATO range users with a credible capability and options for blue and red team planning activities.
We train as we fight
Martin Ruubel, President of Guardtime Estonia said: “When designing and building the defence focused exercise ranges, Guardtime always aims at the principle: “We train as we fight”. For NATO we will provide a state of the art flexible, operationally relevant and representative environment design that enables integrated simulation and training and collaboration for a wide variety of blue and red team cyber mission exercise areas, enabling NATO cyber range users the ability to securely collaborate and refine their tools and tactics.”
Sven Sakkov, Director of NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO CCD COE), a NATO-accredited knowledge hub, research institution, and training and exercise facility focusing on interdisciplinary applied research, consultations, trainings and exercises in the field of cyber security, commented: “The Range is a unique platform for cyber defence exercises and trainings. The Centre has based Locked Shields – the world’s largest and most advanced international technical network defence exercise – on the Range for close to a decade. The versatility and computing power of the platform allows us to simulate a different complex scenario every year for an increasing number of participants.”
