NYU, NYC Cyber Command conduct inaugurate training exercise in new Brooklyn cyber range
Normally, it’s the job of the New York City Cyber Command (NYC3) to defend the city from online threats. But yesterday, its members were actually the ones dishing out the punishment, lobbing a series of attacks at a group of 25-30 New York University cybersecurity graduate students. These besieged “Cyber Fellows” were participating in a two-day red team/blue team exercise, marking the launch of the first sim training program at the newly launched Cyber STRIKE cyber range. The Brooklyn facility is a joint project of NYU Tandon School of Engineering, NYC3 and corporate sponsors.
