Home > Facilities of Cyber Security & Digital Forensics
Cyber Defence Center
Established by National Forensic Sciences University (GFSU) at it’s Gandhinagar campus. It is a physical and virtual environment that is used for Cyber warfare training and cyber technology development. It provides tools that help strengthen the stability, security and performance of Cyber infrastructures and IT systems used by government and defence agencies.

Cyber ranges function like shooting or kinetic ranges, facilitating training in weapons, operations or tactics. Thus, cyberwarriors and IT professionals employed by various agencies train, develop and test cyber technologies to ensure consistent operations and readiness for real world deployment.


  • It supports the Digital India initiative to train and test the digital systems
  • It supports Start-up India by ensuring the security of the cyber solutions by testing and validating the products developed by there searchers.
  • This centre can also support Digital safety and security by collecting and sharing the cyber threats across the globe.
  • Security professionals work together, as one team, across multiple security domains to defend their networks, reinforcing the skills and opportunity for shared security responsibility for the company, agency or service.
  • Improve the ability to identify advanced attacks.
  • Immediately mitigate these attacks.
  • Understand the value of security technologies working together to prevent advanced or zero-day threats hitting the network through immediate reprogramming of all network sensors.
  • Exercise their ability against the most advanced attacks today across myriad scenarios, such as Advanced Persistence attacks, botnets, advanced/zero-day malware, phishing and ransomware.
Cyber Security and Forensics Research Laboratory
A state-of-the-art and advanced research laboratory for Cyber Security and Forensics is established to provide the research environment in the Institute of Forensic Science. The lab is equipped with high configuration software and hardware related to emerging fields of Digital Forensics and Security.
