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.
