How do you teach cybersecurity to a middle school student? To a soldier? To some of the best hackers in the country? How do you evaluate all of these audiences’ skills? Cybersecurity training has been an ongoing challenge for decades. The key to making the best use of your training dollar is to craft training that matches your audience’s needs and engages them in a meaningful manner. When you create an experience so enthralling that your audience is logging in on nights and weekends just to continue participating, the value of immersive training truly shines.
