ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, Md. - Boeing has teamed with root9B to provide cybersecurity training and simulations that are intended to assist customers in addressing rapidly evolving cyber threats. Combining the Boeing Cyber Range-in-a-Box (CRIAB) training and simulation tool with content from root9B, the two companies will offer tailored virtual environments that will help users broaden skills, identify and address their network deficiencies, and respond more quickly to network security threats.

"As cybersecurity threats grow in frequency and complexity, it's critical that enterprises train their information security professionals with realistic scenarios, without compromising the systems they're trying to protect," said Per Beith, director of Boeing Information Security Solutions. "Together, Boeing and root9B will help our customers rapidly train to defend against the threats of today and tomorrow."

Based in Colorado Springs, root9B provides cybersecurity training, operational support, and cyber range capabilities. Through its agreement with Boeing, the latter's CRIAB customers will gain access to root9B training, including more than 120 courses in various aspects of cybersecurity. Root9B is a subsidiary of Premier Alliance Company.

"We're excited about the opportunity to support Boeing's strategic cybersecurity offerings," said root9B CEO Eric Hipkins. "Defending a complex network extends beyond mere technical solutions, appliances, and software. It takes cybersecurity experts with the tactics, training, perspective, and capabilities to stop sophisticated threats, and this is a great step towards addressing these needs."
