What makes the Cybersecurity Center of the Americas unique?
State-of-the-Art Cyber Range
The Cybersecurity Center of the Americas’ state-of-the-art Cyber Range allows trainees to experience cyberattacks in real-time. Trainees utilize best-in-class security products to defend a network environment under attack from some of the most advanced threats in today’s landscape. The Cyber Range, powered by Cyberbit, an incident response platform, is constantly evolving to ensure trainees are experiencing the latest generation of cyberattacks.
Security Operations Center (S.O.C.) Training Facility
The training facility is designed to simulate a real Security Operations Center. Unlike traditional classroom trainings, the facility allows trainees to experience learning and working in a real Security Operations Center environment similar to what they encounter in the industry.
Most security professionals develop their expertise individually, but in practice, security is a team effort. Training should be no different. At the Cybersecurity Center of the Americas’ S.O.C. training facility, an entire I.T. team can take part in a training allowing each trainee to focus on their specific role. During these team trainings, not only will technical knowledge be tested, but so will other important skills such as communication, teamwork, and decision-making.
The Cybersecurity Center of the Americas at Miami Dade College is located on the Wolfson campus in Downtown Miami.
