Organizations and governments need virtual reality labs to address the 5 major gaps in cybersecurity

Organizations and governments need virtual reality labs to address the five major gaps in cyber-security. The major flaws and billions of losses that my government and cooperation face today will make this my topic of choice.

According to Seamus, Mitt and Patrick Walsh for the most recent report on cyber security summit in 2023, they also attested that, - powerful new technologies allow unprecedented scales of data collection, communication, and analysis in the field of national security in the 21st century. A central role has been played by data collection. Legal and national security issues are raised by this development. In addition to privacy and autonomy, there are threats to democracy and national security, as well as a need for liberal democracies to be held accountable. My report will provide ethical analyses of these issues based on the combined contributions of ethics scholars and practitioners in the field of intelligence. The center will be used to conduct research on test simulations. In order to achieve these objectives, it is necessary to analyse how the answers to these problems can be informed by a commitment to influence information security policy within an organization and the legal system itself. Perspectives that are based on both research and real-life experience are essential to an informed perception of ethical challenges.

The testing methods used to date are similar to each other: uniform pen testing and vulnerability assessments. The VMware testing platforms and D.V.W.A and other labs have been standard methods of computer security testing, as organizations and institutions built VMware testing platforms and simulated attacks on Linux platforms. The best way to test, manipulate, and treat viruses is with a cyber range simulation labs. This is exactly the way medical science handles virus mutation, testing, manipulation, and treatment. If we have labs where all computer viruses known to man are stored and maintained, and also where we incubate, eliminate and monitor these viruses, we will benefit everyone globally, instead of waiting for an incident to occur, cyber threats will be better managed and eliminated. Is participation possible for us, and what are our options? We will discuss this in the following sections.

Cyber ranges are one of the most effective ways to improve team coordination as well as experience and change the law. As a result of the knowledge and experience we gain, your organization and government will be able to work more effectively as a team. This information will also protect against cyber-attacks. Teams can prepare themselves for real-life attacks by using cyber ranges.

It is also essential to be able to access a range of cyber-security training, since compliance certificates and insurance policies require varying levels of cyber-security training. Aside from these requirements, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) also set compliance mandates. Organizations are required to budget for relevant cyber training in order to meet these requirements.

Training requirements can be met through several methods. In this regard, the IOS standards and the SANS Institute employees will go a long way toward improving their methodology.

After we have become familiar with the concept and confirmed its value, we can assess its positives and negatives or are we to say, that an outsourced project will be done by a reputable company.

While building and maintaining dedicated on-premise ranges is expensive, they can improve team collaboration and communication. Since employees have increasingly opted to communicate with one another, person-to-person has become more viable.

Prior to the pandemic, many businesses and government agencies had not considered converting their networks to totally visualized networks. In addition to being cheaper to set up and upgrade, virtual versions offer greater flexibility to users. Some organizations, however, insist on face-to-face interaction between their employees.

The program has been requested in hybrid versions by customers. A virtual component as well as an in-person component are included. Despite their flexibility and ability to incorporate vendors and partners, they are also more expensive to develop.

Are there any chances of eliminating some threat actors, such as script kiddies, or might they invent more creative ways to infect computers? The reason for this is that we must prepare for cyber-wars in the near future. In order to avoid mistakes and failures, COVID 19 will be of great assistance to us. The best strategy for improving national security is to be proactive, rather than reactive, when preventing incidents. In spite of this, we should also be prepared for any shortfalls that may threaten our national security.

As I considered recent international security incidents and how they were handled, my experience was greatly motivated by this report. Considering the skills gap in the system, I also considered how to handle them. the writers report further stated many researchers and threat actors have adopted war traditions in order to deal with emerging counter-terrorism policies, drone warfare, bio-security, and private military companies. As a result of cyber security simulations, intelligence studies can gain ethical guidelines and values that will assist them in identifying and reconciling factors required for avoiding practices that are severely contrary to the moral rules governing cyber security intelligence.

Bill Goodwin, Computer Weekly, 11 Jan 2023. According to him

At the World Economic Forum in Davos from 16-20 January 2023, business leaders, politicians, academics, and non-governmental organizations will discuss the growing technological vulnerability of governments and businesses.

Cost-of-living crisis outranks natural disasters, extreme weather events, and geo-economic confrontation as the most significant risk in the next two years, according to the World Economic Forum.

According to the World Economic Forum, widespread cyber crime and cyber insecurity are among the ten most serious short- and long-term risks facing organizations and governments.

There will be consideration given to attacks on agriculture, water, financial systems, public security, and transportation and energy infrastructure. It is also possible that underwater or space-based communications could be attacked.

The Russian government orchestrated cyber-attacks against Ukrainian communications, financial websites, and electricity grids last year, for example.

The disrupting of refugee movements, preventing access to medicine and food supplies, and data theft are all examples of how state actors act against refugees.

I am now motivated to consider how prepared the African continent is for cyber threats, as well as the economic growth of the continent. The continent is estimated to be underprepared for threats in most of its territory.
