Abstract
ABSTRACT: To maintain superiority in the cyber domain, the Air Force is preparing the next generation of cyber warriors. Running trainees through realistic cyber exercises is a highly effective method for preparing warfighters for cyber operations. However, training platforms and cyber missions are numerous, varied, and rapidly-evolving. There is a lack of tools to assess individual and group performance in training exercise events that have the flexibility to work with this wide array of training environments. To improve the effectiveness of cyber exercises, ATC-NY will build the White Team Training Suite (WITTS), a flexible system for objectively monitoring cyber training events and generating briefings, debriefings, and after-action reports for instructors and trainees. WITTS uses agents deployed on an exercise network to collect exercise data, and features interactive dashboards that assist in planning and monitoring exercises, as well as analyzing their results. WITTS includes a number of innovations based on ATC-NY's proprietary remote forensic agent technology and cyber exercise monitoring technology. BENEFIT: WITTS employs a number of innovations in agent technology and monitoring interfaces to deliver an affordable, effective cyber training capability. Its modular agents support a wide variety of cyber platforms and missions, eliminating the need for expensive or inadequate custom-built solutions. WITTS can therefore cost-effectively improve the quality of cyber training events for any enterprise. Organizations from the DoD, government, critical infrastructure, commercial, and academic sectors all rely heavily on information and communications technology, and can all benefit from training their personnel with WITTS.
