Cyber Security

Developing tools to help safeguard critical intelligence networks

As a founding member of the Cyber Conflict Research Consortium, SDL works in collaboration with leading universities and policy research institutions nationwide to support the Department of Homeland Security and military customers with cyber security exercise planning tools and expertise.

SDL and consortium team members recently developed CyberSMART, the Cyber Scenario Modeling and Reporting Tool. This web-based application allows a widely dispersed team of scenario developers to efficiently collaborate and capture the information necessary to plan complex cyber incident preparedness exercises. These exercises help to examine an organization’s capability to prepare for, protect from, and respond to potential cyber attacks, thereby strengthening their security, readiness and incident response capabilities.

SDL is also working with the consortium to develop a multi-user simulation tool for assessing the impact of disruptive events on organizations and enterprises within the financial sector.
