What can CyberMontana do for you?

Education & Training

Providing a wide variety of cyber credentials through credit & non-credit industry certifications (IRC), certificates, high school dual enrollment, and associate & bachelor degrees.

Business & Economic Development

We have trainings in cyber vigilance tailored to both employees & employers, establishing baseline cyber hygiene practices & educating business owners.

Cyber Workforce Development

Cybersecurity education to practicing & aspiring security professionals is available in many formats including boot camps, topical studies, simulations, short courses, internships & apprenticeship programs.

Community Cyber Awareness

Anyone who uses a computer or smartphone is vulnerable. Cyber awareness resources promote safety for our interconnected communities.

Whether you are brand-new to cybersecurity, are transitioning to the field, or are interested in upgrading your skills, earning industry-recognized certification(s) can help you move toward your goals.

Many businesses require their employees to align their skills and certifications with the U. S. Department of Defense 8570 matrix for positions involving:

  • Information Assurance–Technical
  • Information Assurance-Management
  • Information Assurance Architecture and Engineering
  • Cyber Security Service Provider



Are you looking for hands-on interactive training for your team? 

Consider using incident response simulation training hosted on a cloud-based cyber range. During your session trainees identify a security breach, mitigate the effects of the attack, and remedy the vulnerability. Multiple scenarios are available including: 

  • Apache Server Shutdown
  • Trojan Attack
    SQL Server Attack and Database Dump
  • Website Defacement
  • SQL Injection
  • Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) Attack
  • Domain-based Keylogger
  • WordPress Data Leakage Exploit
  • Firewall Configuration Exploit
  • Windows Management Instrumentation
    (WMI) Worm
  • Ransomware Attack
  • Java SendMail Trojan

Scenarios are Linux- or Windows-based, and participants gain experience with industry-standard tools including Security Information and Event Management (SIEM: Splunk, QRadar, ArcSight); Firewall Management (Palo Alto, pfSense, Check Point); Network Traffic Inspection (Wireshark); as well as operating-system-specific utilities.

The cyber range can accommodate up to 12 participants for the optimal learning experience, although larger groups can be scheduled. Range time is billed at $800/hour.
