ICE71 Accelerate 3 Cohort visits Singtel Cyber Range
Earlier in September, our ICE71 A3 Cohort startups had the exciting opportunity to access Singtel Cyber Security Institute’s cyber range facility!
What’s a cyber range?
Like a shooting range which facilitates training in weapons, cyber ranges are facilities where cyber experts train, develop and test cyber range technologies for consistent operation and readiness for real world deployment. A cyber range, in short, trains up cyber warriors to be ready when real attacks happen.
Cyber ranges aren’t cheap
Cyber ranges can help businesses nurture cyber warriors and to better respond to security incidents. But most businesses cannot afford to have cyber ranges because these can cost millions to build and operate. In 2016, as part of a $200mil investment, IBM built a physical cyber range facility designed to allow organizations in the private sector to prepare for and respond to cyber threats.
How can a cyber range help our Accelerate cohort startups?
Cyber ranges such as Singtel’s allow testing and building proof-of-concept (POC) solutions in a virtual environment. With this cyber range, our startups can verify new ideas, test market viability of their cyber products and validate their solutions to potential customers . Best of all, as part of our ICE71 Accelerate and Scale programmes, they can access this cyber range, an enterprise-grade cybersecurity resource – at no cost.
Applications for the next ICE71 Accelerate cohort is OPEN! Learn more and apply by 12 January 2020 here.
