NACRA CyberQuest Events 2023


During the week of October 16th 2023, the North American Cyber Range Alliance (NACRA) is offering a series of hands-on interactive cybersecurity workshops AT NO COST.  The intent is to expose those interested in cybersecurity careers and those with experience in the field to the professional challenges that nation state and criminal adversaries present to those protecting our nation.    

Everyone is eligible to participate, including those in high schools, higher education, business/public professional practitioners, invited guests and the community.  These interactive workshops are made possible without cost through the generosity of  ‘Participating NACRA Organizations’, and NACRA’s  ‘Preferred Range Partners’.   

Participants are expected to abide by ethical and professional standards similar to those required of any professional workplace.
