The cybercrime claim comes from security education and training company FifthDomain, whch says it has enhanced its own technology’s capabilities to give cyber security teachers more freedom than ever before.
FifhtDomain CEO and founder Matt Wilcox says he recognised the need to speed up cyber education and training delivery to keep pace with the changes, while also He also recognising that finding teachers with deep understanding of cyber security and operational environments was going to be challenging.
“People planning on a career in cyber security or those already in cyber roles are aware they need to be lifelong learners,“ Wilcox says.
“We have content ready for teachers to use to teach defensive and defensive cyber operations, which is particularly valuable when it’s new territory. But we also recognise teachers and trainers will get a feel for what their students are interested in or where specific skills gaps exist.
“That’s why we’ve expanded our lab technology to incorporate a teach function. Now teachers can create their own cyber training environments directly through the Learning Labs platform.
“This capability allows teachers to manipulate cloud infrastructure to be fit for purpose for online and on-demand hands on cyber training. Teachers can also add a range of resources such as videos to enhance the learning experience.”
FifthDomain’s head of software development Andrew Keeling claims the company’s technology is “revolutionising the pace, cost and effectiveness” of cyber security training.
“Our technologies are unique in that they offer a full life cycle learning and training environment through learning labs and cyber ranges that replicate life-like environments through the simplicity of a web browser.
“Students can get their hands on keyboards and explore simulated network to learn new skills or test and perfect existing ones. Practical experience is critical for cyber staff, they need to be capable of working in teams to quickly defend against malicious cyber activity.”
FifthDomain says it is currently delivering its services to the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), TAFE NSW, Australian National University (ANU) and the Australian Defence Force.
