Learn more about how GRIMM collaborates with our geographic communities, our fellow security community, and undergraduate security clubs to help train and educate the general public on threats, and ways to be better protected.
GRIMM’s commitment to fostering a safe environment to research and share learnings extends beyond our individual client engagements.
The global workforce shortage in Information Technology and Information Security is on everyone’s mind and is a problem that affects us all. Cue our strategic program, HAX, which builds our future cybersecurity practitioners to be creative, inquisitive, highly skilled, and prepared for the workforce to immediately help solve the toughest security challenges.
HAX is an organization made up of a conglomerate of college cybersecurity clubs with the purpose of fostering friendly competition and collaboration with a long-term vision of becoming a well-established computer security organization with a strong tie to academia. Each month, we provide an instructional session on how to brainstorm, build and execute a CTF (capture the flag) challenge to one school, with a schedule rotating between all participating schools throughout the school year. Each school will develop a challenge for the other school Security Clubs to compete in. Students who solve challenges are awarded points. Individual teams, as well as their school will accumulate points throughout the semester. Points will be tracked across a common leaderboard.
We make an impact both by mentoring students to have the hands-on-keyboard technical skills necessary to compete in security competitions against other academic clubs, and helping prepare their resumes for the workforce after graduation. If you’re affiliated with a collegiate-level security club and are interested in learning more about the GRIMM HAX program please contact us!
ICS Village is a non-profit launched by GRIMM Founder, Bryson Bort, and several other industry experts in 2017 with the purpose of educating and bringing awareness to industry and policymakers to better defend industrial equipment and control systems. The ICS Village learning approach is interactive with hands-on experience with Programmable Logic Controllers, Human Machine Interfaces, Remote Telemetry Units, actuators, and miniature robotic arms that simulate realistic operational environments. This approach builds your skills, and prepares you to better respond to the changing threat landscape. Contact the ICS Village for more information or see them at a conference near you!
