ThinkCyber was founded in Israel in 2016 with the goal of providing advanced cybersecurity training and fostering a new generation of highly skilled professionals.
Our unique approach to education is built on the principles of in-depth research, hands-on training, and real-life simulations, derived from the founder's experience in the Israel Defense Forces.
Founded in 2016 by Mr. David Shiffman and his brightest students, ThinkCyber initially specialized in creating practical exercises and textbooks to provide hands-on training for law enforcement agencies. The company's value proposition was elevated by offering forensic investigations and penetration testing services, ensuring that their training materials were grounded in real-world application and experience.
A crucial turning point occurred in 2017 during one of ThinkCyber's projects in Africa, where the team identified the need for a practical platform that could facilitate hands-on cyber training. Recognizing the limitations of classroom learning, Shiffman led ThinkCyber's research team to develop a pioneering system that could generate scenarios grounded in real-world events, thus equipping students with practical knowledge and real-time capabilities.
Another key requirement that arose was the need for cyber units to monitor their personnel's progress and assess their strengths and weaknesses. This critical feature would allow team leaders to make informed decisions, assigning the right personnel to suitable missions.
Gradually, ThinkCyber enhanced the system by incorporating hands-on labs and supporting textbooks, all under the ThinkCyber banner. In early 2022, ThinkCyber launched Specto, a groundbreaking product that helps countries identify, understand, and prepare for cyber attacks in real-time.
Specto is equipped with machine learning capabilities that allow it to store and analyze the commands, tools, and networks used by attackers. In 2023, the capabilities of Specto were integrated into the Cyberium Simulator, setting a new standard in cyber training. Specto now generates scenarios based on data it analyzed just moments ago, representing a significant leap in cyber training technology. This system empowers students globally to prepare for real cyber threats in an immersive, dynamic, and highly practical learning environment.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of comprehensive cybersecurity education that prepares individuals and organizations to face the rapidly evolving landscape of cyber threats.
Our mission is to empower students with the skills and knowledge needed to defend against cyber attacks, by offering a diverse range of training programs and innovative teaching methodologies that cater to different learning styles and professional backgrounds.
