Electronic Technology Associates, Cyberbit to open new cybersecurity training centre in US

Electronic Technology Associates (ETA) and Cyberbit have announced plans to open a new cybersecurity training and simulation centre in Baltimore Maryland, the US, in April this year.

The proposed Maryland Range cybersecurity training centre will instruct cybersecurity professionals in protecting national assets and infrastructure against cyberattacks.

Maryland Department of Commerce Secretary Mike Gill said: "We're very pleased that the Maryland Range is about to open its doors here in Maryland.

"The training opportunities that the centre will make available to cyber warriors - coupled with the jobs it will bring to Baltimore City this year - make this announcement a win for the city and the state."

Powered by Cyberbit's Range platform, the live, standalone centre allows trainees to practise in real-life settings.

The training in a cybersecurity simulation and training environment facilitates faster and effective response to complex and advanced attacks, including ransomware and to perform better as a team.

Cyberbit CEO Adi Dar said: "The approach of realistic hands-on simulation is proving to be the most effective way to train and certify cyber security professionals.

"I am proud to be part of this initiative and look forward to the upcoming launch."

Located close to the federal government's cyber-related activities in Washington, D.C., at Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Ground, in Maryland, the facility is said to offer cybersecurity professionals the convenience of training with the most current cyber warfare strategies.
