Domains of knowledge

This open-source research lab provides a bootstrap learning platform for Technologists studying any one of the "Big-3" technology skills.

  1. Cyber Security
  2. Cloud Computing
  3. DevOps

This project supports 7 gigantically broad domains of technical knowledge.

  1. Offensive Security
  2. SecDevOps
  3. Architecture & Engineering
  4. Vulnerability, Change, & Configuration Management
  5. Quality Assurance
  6. Auditing - Processing, Systems, Applications
  7. Development - Infrastructure / Web Applications

Mission Statement

The ultimate expectation is to emulate the quality, format, and presentation of the Syracuse University Cyber SEED Labs while creating strategic hubs of Cyber Security Center-of-Excellence Partnerships where the gap between enterprise experience & academic learning is addressed by focusing training paths on people, products, and process.
