Trainees will get exposure to commerical security tools such as Palo Alto firewalls, IBM Q-Radar SIEM, McAfee ePO, Microsoft Active Directory, while also having a full suite of opensource tools such as Zenoss Core, Syslog, PuTTy, Snort, wireshark, etc. Trainees will become familar with identifying and responding to attacks ranging from ransomware, to denial of service, to SQL injection. Range training sessions can accomodate groups of 20 students at a time. Trainees can enroll for a single day session or as long as multiple week sessions depending on what simulations and supporting learning objectives are desired.

Other educational offerings range from 1/2 day workshops and seminars for executives, to hybrid (online & in-person) and in-person class offerings addressing cybersecurity fundamentals. Classes vary in length and can be tailored for an organization's need.
