The 2017 Check Point cybersecurity survey found that almost 65% of U.S. IT professionals did not feel confident in their organization’s overall security posture. Israeli startup CyberGym aims to bolster their confidence and enhance their defensive skills by providing training that immerses the participants in real-life-like cyber warfare experience.
“Before you go into a boxing fight,” says Ofir Hason, CyberGym’s CEO and co-founder, “you want to get the feeling of getting punched in your face. You want to do it in a training facility, with a trainer who knows what he’s doing. We provide companies, critical infrastructure organizations, and government agencies, with the right experience just before the real cyber attack.”
