Cyberbit, Israel-based technology firm, opens a training facility, which offers hands-on cybersecurity training in Spark Baltimore, a co-working center north of the Inner Harbor. Governor Larry Hogan said the center is the first of its kind in the nation.
“It will provide the most up-to-date training for our cyber force, further demonstrating that Maryland is truly the cyber capital of America, Hogan said in an announcement.
The Baltimore Cyber Range utilizes a Cyberbit platform that develops simulated training products. The platform provides hands-on training to security teams in a realistic setting, so they can keep pace with growing cyber threats.
A $250,000 state EARN grant funds the center. The center is powered by a consortium assembled by Electronic Technology Associations, Baltimore-based firm. The group is made up of nine private defense contractors, the Baltimore City Community College and the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development.
