Security Innovation Running a turn-key “Hack Through the Holidays” Event to build Application Security Skills

December 19, 2018

WILMINGTON, Mass., Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security Innovation, an authority in application security, announced it will make its popular CMD+CTRL cyber range available to the public for free for a limited time. With approximately 90% of attacks occurring at the software layer, and research indicating that skilled personnel is a primary reason organizations can’t adequately defend themselves, this initiative helps solve both problems.

A primary goal of Security Innovation’s Hack Through the Holidays event is to educate users about the benefits of using Cyber Ranges to build and maintain skills in an engaging way. Unique to the industry, CMD+CTRL is a simulator where users compete to find vulnerabilities in business applications in real-time. Unlike many holiday promotions, there are no strings attached: no credit cards, commitments, or software to download.

The CMD+CTRL Cyber Range opens up at 9am ET on Friday, December 21. Those looking to learn more about Cyber Ranges can find info in our series of blog posts, starting with Getting Started with a Cyber Range.

Videos, blogs, and tip sheets will help those with limited security background; yet, there are plenty of challenges for even the most advanced hackers. Real-time scoring tracks user progress so you can track progress moving up the leaderboard. There are dozens of challenges of varying levels of difficulty. No one has found them all yet – can you?

Summary Details:

-- Runs from Friday 12/21 until Wednesday 1/2 -- No tools needed – just an internet connection, browser, and attitude -- Register: https://web.securityinnovation.com/hackingthroughtheholidays
