We recently launched a host of new features and improvements in our CMD+CTRL Cyber Range - new metrics, new player report cards, new hints - all with the aim of providing an experience that you’ll remember. Over the next few weeks, we’ll dive into these new features to give you an idea of what to expect. This week we’re detailing seamless event switching and tracking your performance over multiple events.

Gartner Recognized – Customer Appreciated
For the sixth year in a row, Security Innovation was named to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training. While it's always an honor to receive this designation, our real motivator is the impact that we have on reducing IT risk and building staff confidence.
Hot Dogs & Hacking is a wrap, and we are blown away by the number of people who spent time away from the beach and cookouts to attack our Shred Cyber Range. In the past we’ve highlighted top scorers and the occasional person who solves all of the challenges, but this time we have to take a different approach since a whopping SIX participants solved all 35 challenges! Congratulations to each!
When we announced the Hot Dogs & Hacking event currently taking place, we highlighted the value of feedback provided by our ever growing community. The wealth of good ideas allow us to constantly improve our Cyber Ranges while adding more to the mix like we recently did with LetSee. And as good as our Cyber Ranges are, we find that they can’t always solve the biggest challenge teams face - hosting an event that is educational, informative and ties back into the training, development, deployment and testing of the systems being built by teams.
We love feedback! Luckily, the security community errs on the side of collaboration, resulting in constructive, helpful feedback whenever it is requested - and often even when it’s not. From a company perspective this is great since we know exactly what our customers are thinking at most times. From a Cyber Range product perspective it's OUTSTANDING - the ideas for updates, new challenges, areas to explore and events to host has left us with a backlog full of gems to choose from at any time. In other words, our product team is living in a dream world full of great ideas!
For several months we have been profiling experienced security practitioners as well as those still getting started. Our reasoning is simple - there is no one surefire way to gain the experience and knowledge necessary to thrive in the world of cybersecurity. Nearly everyone has a different path - some are PhDs while others barely made it out of high school. Some had deeply technical backgrounds while others stumbled into security out of pure curiosity. Even with the lack of a defined path, we’re hoping that these profiles help individuals figure out the best path for them.
