The Cyber Range is expected to be open by summer 2022

Working with the global IBM Security Cyber Range Team, the Cyber Range will allow users to experience a range of fully immersive cyberattack and cyber threat simulations using the most sophisticated technology and software, replicating real-life cyber event scenarios and strengthening their response readiness. Participants will learn how to plan for, respond to, manage, contain and remediate a cyber incident, to anticipate and defend against current and future threats. In addition to the sensory-immersive and interactive training, the Cyber Range will also enable ground-breaking cybersecurity and cybersafety research across multiple disciplines.
