Teaching Valuable Skills
Security, technology, and entrepreneurial skills are valuable to any career field
Professionals with years of cybersecurity experience teach thoughtfully crafted courses.
Even if a career in cybersecurity is not your end goal, these practices and information will translate into countless jobs and careers.
Making Cyber Security Accessible
Many schools have interest in offering cyber security programs, but these initiatives are often thwarted for lack of teachers who are trained to teach cyber security, and restrictions schools place on allowing students to practice these skills on school-sponsored networks and equipment.
These shortcomings result in students not gaining skill sets required by entry-level employers, making it challenging for students to secure technology jobs and employers to find quality talent.
We change that by providing students a safe place to practice cyber security skills and the teachers and mentors from professional cyber security backgrounds
