Hackers are getting smarter about ways to steal sensitive information from the cloud. Now, a new “Mizzou Cyber Range” will train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals to fight back using cyber pretense strategies.
Thanks to funding from the National Security Agency, a team of University of Missouri Engineers is building the virtual environment that allows students to practice defense strategies in realistic, but isolated and safe settings.
The range already has four learning modules up and running and researchers hope to one day make the modules available to all Mizzou students, and ultimately to instructors and students at any university. As part of the National Security Agency project efforts, the project team has plans to disseminate the Mizzou Cyber Range outcomes via workshops and tutorials to the NSA-designated National Centers for Academic Excellence University Community.
