The Cyber Academy

An Overview

The Cyber Academy is a progression of three courses designed to impart a strong foundation of defensive and offensive information security skills in 34 weeks of full-time study. Development of the 100% project-based, learn-by-doing program was funded, in part, by the Department of Defense (under agreement C5-16-0023), and the curriculum was designed in conjunction with DoD-selected experts.

Students work through 20 tasks (spending 1-2 weeks per task) online in a private cloud environment with help, advice, and feedback from a knowledgeable mentor and extensive online learning resources. 

The tasks are embedded in the realistic, but fictional, context of work as an entry-level employee of a government cyber operations agency.
