addresses cybersecurity skills gap and equips graduates,
organizations and practitioners with the skills required to combat
today's threats

Cyberbit
Ltd
., a world leading provider of cybersecurity simulation and IT/OT
detection and response platforms, and Miami
Dade College
(MDC), today announced the opening of the MDC Cyber
Range training facility at the new state-of-the-art Cybersecurity
Center of the Americas at MDC
. The only one of its kind in
the region
and powered by the Cyberbit
Range
platform, this cybersecurity training center will provide
hands-on cybersecurity training to students, organizations and
cybersecurity professionals, to fill the ever-increasing number of open
cybersecurity positions. The Cybersecurity Center of the Americas
will officially open at 11 a.m., ET
on Wednesday, Aug. 22, at
MDC's Wolfson Campus. MDC's President Dr. Eduardo J. PadrónAdi
Dar, CEO of Cyberbit
and others will deliver remarks.

"Companies always value graduates with work experience, but in the world
of cybersecurity its importance is tenfold," said Antonio
Delgado, Dean of Engineering, Technology and Design, at Miami Dade
College.
"The Cyberbit Range is a cutting-edge environment that will
help students and professionals gain valuable experience facing
real-life cyberattacks."

Hands-on cyber range simulation is becoming the de-facto approach for
cyber training. Cyberbit pioneered this approach, recently
receiving
a U.S. $30 million investment from Claridge Israel to
accommodate the rising demand for its Cyberbit Range product. As the
leading provider of cyber ranges, Cyberbit has led the charge in
partnering with innovative higher education institutions to train
skilled cyber experts. To-date, Cyberbit has partnered with dozens of
higher education institutions, enterprises and service providers to open
training facilities based on its Cyberbit Range technology. These
ranges, operating in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia, provide
students, cybersecurity practitioners and organizations with the
cybersecurity training and resources they need to develop the skills
required to combat today's threats.

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing new information technology
professions, with demand far outpacing supply. There are currently more
than 200,000 unfilled cybersecurity positions in the U.S. alone, and
that number is expected to continue to rise. Recognizing this need, MDC
partnered with Cyberbit to help students, Florida-based organizations
and cybersecurity practitioners obtain the highest level of skills
needed for careers in cybersecurity. MDC's new Cybersecurity Center of
the Americas offers the most advanced technology and will pave the way
for a new generation of cybersecurity experts. As the nation's largest,
campus-based institution of higher education, the center features the
state-of-the-art MDC Cyber Range, the first of its kind in the region.

"With over 12,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs in Florida alone, this new
center will have a huge impact on both the cyber resilience and economy
of the region," said Adi Dar, CEO at Cyberbit. "We are
rapidly rolling out our hyper-realistic cybersecurity training and
simulation platform, which enables trainees to experience true-to-life
cyberattack scenarios and practice responding to them, at institutions
of higher education across North America."

The MDC Cyber Range will support MDC's important initiative to grow
cybersecurity competency in Florida and help fill thousands of open
cybersecurity positions in the region and nationwide. The college will
expand cyber education available to students and prepare them for
careers in one of the country's fastest growing technical professions.
In addition, the facility will offer hands-on training, certification
and assessment for commercial and public-sector organizations in Florida.
