The Joint Cyber-Defense Command completes its training with Indra Cyber Range

Madrid, July 17, 2019 – The staff of Joint Cyber-Defence Command in Spain has completed the programmed training with the Indra Cyber Range solution to reinforce their ability to conduct and execute military operations in cyberspace.

Unlike other domains, attacks in this area occur continuously without the need for a situation of conflict having been declared. Great powers, criminal organizations and terrorist groups take advantage of any opportunity to spy, attack or obtain an economic benefit.

Much of a country’s ability to protect itself and to carry out military deployments depends directly on the preparation of its cyber-intelligence experts. The Spanish Joint Cyber-Defense Command last year chose Indra’s solution to prepare collaborative cyber-exercises together with the armies from various Ibero-American countries with the aim of sharing knowledge and responding to global attacks in a coordinated way.

They also used it to carry out advanced training in forensic analysis techniques. These techniques allow information and evidence to be gathered to help solve digital crimes. This intelligence capacity is vital to analyze the strategies followed by the enemy and to limit the anonymity that allows them to operate without impunity.

In its Academy modality, Indra’s solution combines theoretical study with the execution of real tests to ensure maximum level preparation and facilitate the evaluation and monitoring of each of the experts. Indra Cyber Range helps civil and military organizations to train their staff.

The solution allows an exercise to be restarted at the point where it was left, accessing it remotely from any location.

Indra is a leading company in the fields of cyberdefense and cybersecurity that protects organizations and companies from all sectors and that has an extensive network of partners of companies, universities and research centers in whom they rely on to develop its training content.

Indra is integrated into the network of companies that collaborates with the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) in the exchange of cybersecurity intelligence to reinforce mutual situational awareness and detect, prevent and respond to any cyberattack.

Indra offers training to private and public organizations as a service in its platform, directly accessing the tool set up in their own cloud, and which meets the security standards required by international organizations such as NATO.
