ML-Driven Decision-Making in Realistic Cyber Exercises

October 2022 Podcast
Dustin D. Updyke, Thomas G. Podnar

Thomas Podnar and Dustin Updyke discuss efforts by the SEI CERT Division to apply machine learning to increase the realism of non-player characters (NPCs) in cyber training exercises.

“When I first started working with the Army over five years ago, the concept of realism wasn’t strongly identified as something that should be included in the cyber exercises. It became clear to us after a couple of years of work that realism within that exercise environment is critical to the idea of “train as you fight.””
