The US Army has the National Training Center. The FBI trains its best in Hogan’s Alley. The tactical training range has become the state-of-the-art training environment for practitioners, from local police forces to National Guard Army brigades, who use such experiences to hone skills and practice teamwork. Now – cyber warriors, defenders, and investigators can take advantage of the same kind of live speed, realistic training in Alphaville, which resides on the Michigan Cyber Range. With Alphaville, there is no reason to be satisfied with short term, single use, shallow training environments. In this session, you will preview a live hack on Alphaville’s infrasture which includes a financial institution, school, hospital, library etc. In this session, hackers intent on disrupting communications, stealing critical information or intellectual property, and causing mayhem will be previewed. Depicted is the real-world demanding atmosphere that strengthens team communication and documentation in addition to individual skills. Team members will hack systems, plant their flag, secure the system, and move on. Teams can attack each other, replacing one flag with an opponent’s. The team with the most flags left planted when time is called wins the exercise.
