Topic: The Virginia Cyber Range: Cloud-based Resources for Cybersecurity Education
The Virginia Cyber Range is a Commonwealth of Virginia initiative with a mission to enhance cybersecurity education in our high schools and colleges. The range provides an extensive courseware repository for educators and a cloud-hosted virtual environment where students practice what they have learned in immersive, hands-on laboratory exercises to complement their cybersecurity courses. The Virginia Cyber Range also hosts a competition environment to support capture-the-flag and other types of exercises. Our cloud-based approach allows fast deployment and scalability, and it eases the burden on Virginia schools of providing infrastructure for cybersecurity labs. In this talk and demo, I will describe the vision for the range, discuss the current status, and show how we are supporting cybersecurity education in the Commonwealth
