DC Has A New  State-of-the-Art Cyber Response Training Facility

IBM has announced the official opening of the new IBM X-Force Cyber Range in Washington, DC.

According to IBM, the range includes new custom training exercises specifically designed to help U.S. federal agencies, their suppliers and critical infrastructure organizations more effectively respond to persistent and disruptive cyberattacks, and threats posed by AI. The state-of-the-art facility is designed to help everyone from legal and mission-critical leaders, to the C-Suite and technical security leaders prepare for a real-world cyber incident.

From national security threats to supply chain disruptions impacting the goods and services we rely on every day, cyberattacks on government and critical infrastructure can have ramifications that go far beyond the balance sheet. The elite and highly customizable cyber response training we provide at our new DC range helps organizations and federal agencies better defend against existing and emerging threats, and also addresses federal mandates like those in the Biden Administration’s Executive Order 14028 focused on improving the nation’s cybersecurity.– Alice Fakir, Partner, Lead of Cybersecurity Services, US Federal Market for IBM Consulting.

The first event will take place in the spring of 2024 and will host organizations within the chemical, energy (including electric, oil, gas, and renewables), and water industries. The scenario will be customized to cater to specific issues facing these industries. The second session will be held later this year.
