Guardtime  was recently awarded a contract to design the next generation NATO cyber range 
and Dandurand's appointment is a key milestone to deliver highly integrated exercise, testing and experimentation solutions, addressing government and enterprise cybersecurity training needs, including Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Network Defense.

Prior to Guardtime Dandurand was in charge of the ICT Applications and Cybersecurity Division at the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), worked at NATO NCIA, initiated and led the Cyberlab at Canadian CSE and served a distinguished 14 year career as a Signals Officer in Canadian Armed Forces, leading Joint Red Team operations.

Martin Ruubel, President of Guardtime Estonia said:
“Luc is a globally acclaimed cybersecurity expert who has previously developed and grown a number of critical cyber capabilities and programs in both military as well as civilian environments. He brings highly relevant experience and is well placed to lead Guardtime’s Cyber Operations team through the opportunities ahead.”
Commenting his appointment, Dandurand said:
“I’m looking forward to work with the team at Guardtime to provide a fundamentally next-level experience for its defense and government customers who are looking to enhance their cyber survivability through a state of the art, operationally relevant and representative cyber range environment, as well as accompanying services.”
The next generation NATO Cyber Range will considerably enhance the Alliance’s cyber operations capabilities, promoting effective cooperation and collaboration with the state-of-the-art tools, techniques, and procedures that provide range users with a credible capability and flexible options for blue and red team activities.
