IBM Security (NYSE: IBM) today announced that more than 600 visitors, representing organizations from a dozen industries, have participated in war-game-like training for cyber-attacks at its X-Force Command Cyber Range. These hundreds of participants experienced how to prepare for and respond to cyber-attacks using live malware and real-world scenarios at the company’s Cyber Range.
Officially opened in January, the world’s first commercial Cyber Range is helping clients address a critical gap in responding the cyber-attacks. An IBM sponsored study on Cyber Resilience found 75 percent of IT and security professionals surveyed say their organization does not have a modern incident response plan applied across the entire enterprise.
