Raising cybersecurity awareness: Developing a Cyber Range for education and simulation

Department of Informatics, Faculty of Intelligent Electrical and Informatics Technology, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember

According to the Cyber Security Incident Report published by the Indonesian government, about 250 million cyber-attacks were reported in the year 2021. These numbers constitute a 25% increase from the previous year. The most common cyber-attacks are botnets, trojan horses, RDP-related attacks, and denial of services.  However, practical training that emulates real-life cases is hard to implement.

This proposal aims to develop a “cyber range” which would provide a safe and controlled environment for individuals and organizations to develop their cybersecurity skills.

The project aims to:

  • Redeploy an existing cloud platform to a new and more powerful hardware
  • Setup and configure the cyber range platform onto the new private cloud platform.
  • Develop cases to be used for the training material, brainstorming ideas and conducting surveys to see the best methods for introducing cyber security.
  • Introduce security training programs on the cyber range to a wider Indonesian audience.
