Description "CyberProtect teaches students about the basics of Information Assurance and the defensive tools that are available to help protect information on computer networks. Students are presented with a connected network that initially has no defensive hardware, software, or policies in place yet. Although the student is not required to construct the virtual network, it is the student’s responsibility to purchase appropriate equipment and software to ensure that the network is properly defended against both internal and external threats. Once the student has applied defensive tools and locked in the new configuration, CyberProtect performs a simulation of 90-days of network activity and searches for vulnerabilities in the network configuration. As attacks occur, the student is presented with audio and video feedback that describes the nature of the attacks. The simulation phase continues over four 90-day periods with the student receiving feedback and having an opportunity to modify the configuration at the end of each 90-day period. "
