Our Purpose

Increase the number of skilled cybersecurity experts across all sectors.

We value customer service, ease-of-use, and innovative, cloud-based strategies to provide cyber-education and training resources.

What We Offer

We provide access to your own virtual infrastructure for online cybersecurity learning with our comprehensive cyber range platform. With administrative access to your own instance of our cyber range software, you will be able to create instructor accounts on behalf of your organization. Instructors can then create courses, enroll students, and provision exercise environments for their students.

Our platform makes it easy for you to create an immersive learning experience that better prepares students for today’s cyber threats. We provide a rich and customizable set of environments to go along with lab exercises to give students hands-on experience in cybersecurity. 

Our online capture-the-flag competition environment can be used by clubs and classes to practice and learn basic cybersecurity skills. Participating organizations will also get access to our ever-growing library of courseware and exercise materials that includes syllabi, lesson plans, presentation slides, and exercise documents, in modular format, on a variety of cybersecurity topics.

Sharing best practices in cybersecurity education

Another goal of the U.S. Cyber Range is to facilitate a robust community of cybersecurity educators and provide venues for collaboration. Our customers share a cybersecurity community forum to collaborate on classroom resources, lesson ideas, pacing guides, and more. The annual Virginia Cybersecurity Education Conference provides customers opportunities for professional development, and to expand their networks with other educators across the country.
