Offensive Cybersecurity Training and Education for Government

Why is cybersecurity important for governments and the public sector:

  • Risk of a data breach
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Loss of reputation

Challenges for public sector cybersecurity teams today:

  • Governments and public sector organizations manage a vast amount of sensitive and classified information. A breach of that data could result in a significant national security threat, making public sector organizations a lucrative target for hackers. Furthermore, they must adhere to a set of regulatory compliances and standards where failure to do so can result in severe consequences, including financial penalties and damage to reputation.
  • Talent shortage
  • Access to real-world training scenarios that mimic public sector environments

August 2023: Announcing new defensive capabilities in the OffSec Cyber Range

While there are several cyber range platforms available, the OffSec Cyber Range (OCR) distinguishes itself with its focus on realism, up-to-date exploit scenarios, and its ability to cater to a wide range of cybersecurity roles. Whether you’re looking to train your red teams consisting of penetration testers and exploit developers, or blue teams with SOC Analysts, threat hunters, and system administrators, OCR has something to offer.

OCR provides a highly realistic and engaging experience, meticulously crafted to replicate real-world environments. This realism extends to the exploits and attack scenarios, which are regularly updated to reflect the evolving cyber threat landscape. 

With new attack vectors typically incorporated into the OCR just two weeks after their public release, you’re not merely studying past threats. Instead, you’re proactively equipping yourself with knowledge to preemptively tackle future cybersecurity challenges.
