“My first cyber range experience was awesome! It’s a must for anyone who wants to build skills in a fun way.”
“The cyber range changed my approach to coding. Now my first thought is, how could someone hack this?”
“Providing students with engaging learning opportunities like cyber ranges helps them become fluent in technology”
“Hands-on experience is critical for anyone entering the security field. Cyber Ranges are a great way to do this”
“I already have had several people ask when we were going to a cyber range event again!”
Most educational institutions have marginalized security to specialized tracks, women and minorities are not adequately represented, and it can be perceived as a profession only for the elite technical few.
Our goal is simple: spark interest in this exciting profession by making it easy to get started, be challenged, and yes – have fun with security.
