We host one of the most innovative cybersecurity laboratories.

Our training and venture building team take advantage of our world-class testbed facilities. From scalable digital twins to representative physical manufacturing and connected vehicle systems

We are also here for you. If you have a need for a small-scale virtual or physical testbed to build, test and validate device deployment, processes, sub-systems etc. We can work with you to build this to your specifications, and you can hire the testbed and our top-class cyber engineers for a period of time to help you with this.

Simulate, Secure, Succeed

We host one of the most innovative cybersecurity laboratories consisting of a range of state-of-the-art equipment designed to practice hands-on offensive and defensive techniques on relevant and realistic representative systems.

Physical Cyber Systems

The lab currently includes three cyber physical systems representative of; a pharmaceutical production line, a connected vehicle rig, and an oil and gas sub-system. We are currently developing systems representative of smart cities and energy distribution.

HMIs and PLCs Hardware

All systems consist of hardware (HMIs, PLCs) that are widely used within the industry, allowing users to conduct experiments, collect data, and develop cutting-edge defence mechanisms based on small scale representative systems.

Immersive Augmented Reality (AR)

“Digital Twins” of systems such as healthcare, education, smart homes, and industrial systems allow us to create and visually showcase different cyber attack scenarios, used to make decisions to defend against the occurring attack.

Complex Network Infrastructures

We can virtually create different networks using representative and relevant software (OSs and applications) ultimately allowing us to link the visual element of the AR with an actual networking system.

Realistic Virtual Network

Users will be able to use the AR to visually observe how an attack propagates on e.g. a hospital, while it occurs on the representative virtual network on the cyber range. This will allow people to respond to the attack by applying a range of defence measures in real-time.

Surround Sound and Digital Wall

A surround sound system and a digital wall have also been installed. The latter showcases a Security Operations Centre (SOC) dashboard, displaying all the relevant information of the system under attack.
