With the growth of the Internet and billions of connected devices, opportunities are greater than ever for sophisticated and targeted attacks. Gaining an understanding of how attackers operate is crucial in the prevention of further compromise and exploitation. The Cyber Threat Laboratory is an environment built in partnership with Lancaster University which grants unparalleled insight into the emerging threat landscape as it unfolds.
Fujitsu Enterprise & Cyber Security and Security Lancaster have partnered to create a flexible research facility that enables threat analysis and identification of sophisticated attacks to be tested. The Cyber Threat Laboratory hosted at Lancaster University is designed to provide a collaborative platform that allows analysis of threats and behaviour to take place, in a safe and controlled environment. The laboratory provides centralised infrastructure enabling multiple projects and experiments operating simultaneously inside the lab to benefit from mature industry standard tools.Comparable to any research with unknown volatile outcomes, experiments into cyber threats and malware also needsto be handled in a controlled environment with appropriate safeguards and equipment. Lancaster University with industry input from Fujitsu is now able to offer this to its users though the Cyber Threat Laboratory.
