Fortify your defences using

Cyberattack simulations

Cyberattack simulations are an essential component of a robust cybersecurity strategy, providing organizations with a proactive way to test and strengthen their digital and human defences. By simulating a range of cyberattack scenarios, organizations identify vulnerabilities, test the effectiveness of their security measures, and train staff to recognize and respond to threats.

Protect your organization’s data

Our expert cybersecurity team has delivered more than 900 projects in the last three years to address a diverse range of cybersecurity challenges. We have decades of experience and dozens of experts in digital forensics incident response (DFIR) who understand the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) of an attacker.


Simulation support services

Calian supports organizations through cyberattack simulations and related services:

  • Tabletop exercises
  • Cyber breach and incident response development
  • Red team and ethical penetration testing
  • BCP and DRP plans
  • Threat modelling
  • Cloud security design

Ransomware simulation

Calian’s expert cybersecurity team has decades of experience conducting ransomware simulations that strengthen the security profiles of organizations in a wide range of markets, from healthcare and education to finance and manufacturing. 

Calian’s ransomware simulations identify vulnerabilities and ensure your organization is prepared for an attack. Our experts deploy a non-intrusive ransom simulation toolkit on key sample assets and our security advisor collaborates with the IT team to observe how your defence reacts. 


We test your defences by simulating a real attack with controllable components:

  • Command and control 
  • Encryption 
  • Data exfiltration
  • Advanced TTPS
  • Real-time indicators
  • Hyper-accurate detection
  • Threat intelligence
  • Automated protection response
  • Remediation processes

Key features of Calian ransomware simulations

  • Controllability—Neither the network nor the computer on which it is executed will be affected by the ransomware. All of the artifacts have been developed by Calian.
  • Technology-centred—A member of the client team; system administrator or security personnel will monitor each step of Calian’s execution via a remote session while the company performs the tests.
  • No downtime—Encrypt only specific folders on local drives and network shares created specifically for this exercise. 

Risk-free cybersecurity training in a simulated environment

Cyber Range provides experiential learning for cyber skills development, enhancing retention, improving readiness and reducing errors. Users train in a simulated environment based on real-world cyber attacks, allowing learners to rehearse incident response and train as a team.
