Cyber Range Hubs aim to establish Michigan as the national epicenter for security training and workforce development.
A Cyber Range Hub is a magnet site for your community that brings people, schools and employers together to be part of the cybersecurity ecosystem.
Hub sites are used to host events, exercises and training classes. Companies can access virtual infrastructure for product development, testing and demonstration.
Statewide hubs operate as a physical extension of the Michigan Cyber Range, the nation’s largest unclassified cyber range. Hubs offer more than forty industry-recognized certifications, exercises and workshops aimed at qualifying individuals for positions and contracts in cybersecurity fields.
