Study on Cybersecurity Training Benchmarks

The Value of Realistic Simulation

An independently conducted report by the Ponemon Institute

A critical challenge for organizations, as revealed in other Ponemon Institute research, is the inability to have the necessary in-house expertise to support a strong cybersecurity posture. A solution to this problem is a training program that is engaging for the learners, while increasing their effectiveness in preventing and detecting cyberattacks.

Sponsored by Security Innovation, the purpose of this study is to understand the current state of training programs and what makes such programs successful. The study involves over 1,000 organizations in 17 countries that have a formal training program, an ad hoc program or no program at all.

"Similar to flight simulators, CMD+CTRL is the perfect complement to traditional training because it immerses the learner in a realistic environment and prepares them for the cybersecurity battle they will face."

"We began training with a single cyber range event. It generated so much excitement that teams immediately asked when we’re running the next one."
