Arkansas Cyber Range Project

 
On October 5, 2017, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced that a $500,000 grant from the Arkansas Department of Higher Education will be provided to the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) to help pay for a fully functional dedicated cyber range for educational training.
 
Over the past year, the cyber range was constructed on the UCA campus by METOVA, a national leader in software and cyber range development, and UCA began work on developing post-secondary content and ensuring the range is remotely accessible. In November 2018, the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) entered into agreements with METOVA and NICERC to develop curriculum modules to be used to teach important cyber security concepts.
 
This page will be used to share information about the Arkansas Cyber Range, developed modules, professional development offerings, and online learning opportunities related to Information Security.
