CyberGym, Hitachi to Launch Cybersecurity Training Facility in Japan

As part of the agreement, a hands-on cyber security training and defense facility will be established at Hitachi’s complex in Japan

CyberGym and Hitachi announced the launch of an advanced hands-on cybersecurity training and defense training facility. This solution will deliver protective measures for critical infrastructure in a real technological environment. 

As part of the agreement, a hands-on cyber security training and defense facility will be established at Hitachi’s complex in Japan. CyberGym will train Hitachi’s employees who will operate the facility.

"This partnership has been launched at a time when critical infrastructure is a real target in the emerging cyber war," said Ofir Hason, CEO of CyberGym. "Hitachi’s new cyber security training and defense facility in Japan further expands CyberGym’s growing global footprint. The joint activities between CyberGym and Hitachi offer a unique opportunity to form a long-term partnership both in Japan and potentially other countries where Hitachi operates. This agreement demonstrates the increased seriousness and sense of urgency around preparing organizations for cyber-attacks."

CyberGym's training is conducted in a staged technological environment which is identical to the one in which the organization operates. According to the company, this unique approach enables organizations to practice real-world cyber-attack scenarios. "CyberGym is the only cyber security training and defense provider that trains organizations for active cyber defense, events mitigation, and crisis management," added Gilad Yoshi, CyberGym’s Vice President, Sales & Business Development.
