CompTIA penetration-testing challenge

In March 2019 Immersive Labs and CompTIA challenged UK and US cybersecurity pros to prove their pen-testing skills. The multi-week competition saw over 3,000 users complete 30,000-plus labs, equating to 19 months on the platform and 2.4 million points scored.

Our CEO James Hadley said, ‘It was great to partner with such a respected training and global certification provider. We want our gamified, intelligence-powered labs to inspire the continuous development of cybersecurity professionals.’

‘Crack the Cube’ with Hiscox

In May 2019 Immersive Labs drummed up excitement around Hiscox’s Cyberclear365 launch by powering a ‘Crack the Cube’ event at Lloyd’s of London. We enlivened the company’s cyber-risk research through interactive challenges testing cybersecurity knowledge, applying gamification to boost engagement and inspire knowledge retention. Over 150 insurance underwriters and brokers took part.

Matt Webb, Hiscox Cyber Line Underwriter, said, “We find 70% of breaches and intrusions come in via employees, so it’s important to build the human firewall. Gamifying training can communicate the message without the employees really realising they’re learning to be that firewall.”

Commonwealth cyber exercise with Citi

In June 2019 Immersive Labs powered a Commonwealth Cyber Exercise spanning four continents and nine countries. It involved over 150 participants simultaneously playing three decision-based labs, which were co-authored with Citi Bank in conjunction with the UK Foreign Office and World Bank.

IMF, Bank of England and numerous African banks attended the event, which ran seamlessly for all participants – no matter their location.

The CORE Challenge

In August 2019, Immersive Labs partnered with Accenture Security, Palo Alto and Splunk to power the Accenture Security CORE Challenge at Black Hat USA. This saw four players simultaneously complete red team CTF challenges based on the technology of Splunk and Palo Alto.

The bespoke lab simulated a realistic small office network, playing out from the perspective of an attacker who had gained access. It had various defences in place, including host endpoint protection and next-gen firewalls provided by Palo Alto and Splunk. As players progressed through the lab, they could see when they flagged a security alert in real time.
