CYB 5640 Cyber Training Range is equivalent to WSS 010 Cyber Training Range, see defined eligible period on the Equivalency Listing.
This classroom (CLRM) course provides hands on laboratory exploration of adversarial cyber threats to DOD networks and weapon systems. Students will learn and execute (in the lab environment) basic offensive cyber techniques, develop system requirements to defeat the threats, implement countermeasures and assess countermeasures effectiveness. Two days are spent on enterprise network attacks and security countermeasures and one day is spent working with an unmanned aerial system simulator which is representative of currently fielded DOD unmanned weapon systems. The inclusion of offensive techniques training for DoD weapon systems differentiates this workshop from similar training provided in the commercial sector.
