What is a Cyber Center?

To be cyber-defense ready in today’s digital world, it takes personnel with the right skills utilizing the right resources. It takes a cyber center. A Cyber Center is a virtual or physical platform that offers a set of cybersecurity and cyber intelligence solutions to a specific community.

Born from Israeli IDF training methods, education experts, and industry veterans comes Cybint’s solution to an increasingly critical cyber workforce shortage. Cybint works with private industry, academia, and government entities to help produce a strong, highly trained cadre of cybersecurity professionals. The mutual goal is to enhance awareness, expand education, and bolster the capacity of those involved to prevent, investigate, and respond to cyber threats and cybercrimes.

What is a Cyber Center

Cybint’s Cyber Center Solution

Three main components including (1) Hands-on Education, (2) Talent Matching, and (3) Innovation lay the foundation for Cybint’s world-class Cyber Center.

1. Hands-on Education

The first component is Hands-on Education ranging from awareness and literacy, hands-on labs, to advanced specializations and custom solutions. Programs can be tailored for a specific industry, level of expertise, and medium (online or on-premise).

  • Level 1 – Cyber Literacy: Cybersecurity training and cyber intelligence literacy and understanding for non-technological audiences, for example, business, finance, and law enforcement.
  • Level 2 – CSA Simu-labs: Cyber training and education for entry-level IT and security personnel, for example, security operations center (SOC) analysts and security consultants.
  • Level 3 – Cyber Specializations: Advanced programs to enhance unique highest-level cybersecurity skills such as threat intelligence, ethical hacking, and forensics.
  • Range Simulation: In addition to these three levels, we can provide a platform of Range simulation-as-a-service or on-premise.

2. Talent Matching

The Cyber Center helps to match qualified trainees with jobs and service providing opportunities in the region and industry, mainly to SMBs that need the support of external services. The center can become a regional MSSP or work with other MSSPs to support the shortage of qualified professionals.

We connect the Cyber Center to our Cyber Talent Network platform that allows the matching process of trainees and employers in the region. This free, easy-to-use platform adds tremendous value to the training effort.

3. Innovation

Lastly, the Cyber Center attracts innovative entrepreneurs, startups, researchers and other stake-holders to take part in the community effort to solve the challenges of the specific region or industry. The Cyber Center can offer incubation and acceleration programs to attract talents and develop new ideas and technologies.

The Makings of a Cybersecurity Partnership

These three ingredients define the makings of a successful partnership between higher education, industry and government. The need for robust protection against cyber-attacks is great, and the cybersecurity skills gap is a big problem for organizations struggling to protect rapidly expanding systems from a growing range of threats. Together, organizations from nonprofits and universities, to government agencies and financial institutions can help close the cybersecurity skills gap with a world-class Cyber Center. We do not have to do it alone.
