SAIC-Root9B Partnership to Offer Cybersecurity Training, Simulation Environments in Govt Sector

Science Applications International Corp. and Root9B will collaborate to offer training and simulation environments intended to help government organizations prepare personnel to secure cyber operations.

The alliance seeks to integrate SAIC’s Integrated Training Edge training platform and  Root9B’s DAEDALUS cyber range content into a modular training platform that will  support cyber force certification, SAIC said Tuesday.

“This collaboration will enable operationally-focused teams to receive immersive training in areas like Joint Operations Planning Process, cyber operations, and advanced training in Operational Design and Operational Art,” said Josh Jackson, senior vice president and general manager of SAIC’s training and simulation service line.

Mike Morris, chief technology officer of Root9B, said the partnership will offer a learning environment in efforts to help customers manage complex cybersecurity operations, incidents and scenarios.

Root9B also secured a subcontract from SAIC in June to provide manpower, services and technologies to the Defense Department and Cyber Command.
