SANS NetWars Continuous

Your organization’s information technology staff are your first line of defense against cyber attacks. To keep your organization – and your sensitive information – safe and secure, it is crucial that your information technology employees regularly receive the most up-to-date training on innovations in cybersecurity, as well as effective methods to combat cyber criminals and their ever-evolving tactics.

To address this need, CIS is proud to partner with the SANS Institute to offer our members one of SANS’s most popular, and effective, online training methods: NetWars Continuous. SANS NetWars Continuous uses the gamification of IT security to advance your employees’ most vital infosec skills. To build their skills and keep them from getting rusty, they need an environment where they can apply their knowledge to solving real-world infosec issues to stay sharp. That’s what NetWars Continuous is all about. Over the course of 4 months and 5 levels, they can master real-world tactics and techniques in a safe learning environment.

SANS NetWars Continuous

SANS NetWars Continuous allows participants an opportunity to advance their hands-on technical skills. Players learn the areas where they need to increase their proficiency so they may improve, come back, and continue the challenge. Participants receive four months of access to NetWars Continuous. At the end of the four months, participants will receive a written assessment of the skills which they demonstrated during NetWars.

Participants in SANS NetWars Continuous online challenge are given four months to experiment with real-world scenarios, and test their hands-on skills in several key areas:

  • Vulnerability Assessments
  • System Hardening
  • Malware Analysis
  • Digital Forensics
  • Incident Response
