Learning Characteristics of Cyber Security Exercises with Complex Environments
The digitalised global cyber domain and all the interdependencies between networked systems form an extremely complex ensemble. Cyber attacks or incidents against system may affect capricious effects for another system or even for physical devices. Cyber Security Exercises are an effective expedient for training and learning measures and operations with their outcomes in that complex cyber domain. A sufficiently realistic complex learning environment is necessary for collaborative learning at the expert level. Evaluating the learning outcomes of complex exercises is an important task for both assessing how individuals met the learning objectives, and how to improve the exercise to better serve those goals. In this presentation, the learning outcomes of cyber security exercises are discussed.
