Abstract (english): 
Purpose: This paper proposes how cyber ranges, which are simulation environments and platforms, can be used for cybersecurity training to reduce the vulnerability sur-face of the maritime supply chain caused by cyberthreat challenges. An additional benefit to conducting exercises for personnel with realistic environments is that un-seen problems can be detected when training with different scenarios. Methodology: This study aims to create a holistic model for a cyber range training environment customized for the port/maritime logistics sector by simulating the ac-tual operational environment. The research combines cybersecurity and risk man-agement with the special requirements of maritime logistics. The methods used were a literature review and a workshop and interview setup with cybersecurity, risk management and maritime professionals. Findings: The demand for high-level resilience in global maritime supply chains, in addition to better business continuity management, is becoming increasingly im-portant as global markets seek rapid responses to change. There are various new emerging technologies in the pipeline, which are rapidly gaining popularity in the lo-gistics and supply chain management context. Cybersecurity preparedness is there-fore essential. Originality: Organizational and individual cybersecurity preparedness can be im-proved when individuals have access to hands-on training with realistic cyber exer-cise scenarios that cover different levels of interactions and triggers/injects in the ac-tual environment. The training scheme focuses on training both technical and non-technical staff to provide extensive coverage of cyber awareness.
