Traditional live classroom training and even computer-based training (CBT) are things of the past. We should know. We've been doing it since 2004. Developed by two authors of Hacking Exposed: Industrial Control Systems and the author of Industrial Cybersecurity: Efficiently secure critical infrastructure systems, we bring you a new innovative and modernized way to learn industrial cybersecurity of all levels. Using cutting-edge gaming technology we take "gamification" to a new level and deliver an engaging and immersive simulation-based educational experience.
Solving the industrial cybersecurity skills gap doesn't stop with training. We build a mentorship style relationship with each of our clients, which includes advisory and consulting services combined with our ongoing training and education. From assessments and penetration testing to entire cybersecurity and cyber risk program management support, we will be there to help you at every step, educating you and your staff along the way. You'll have the best in the business in your corner. Few people have been doing longer then our industrial cybersecurity experts.
ICS specific cyber threat monitoring is an integral part of an industrial cybersecurity program, and many quality ICS specific threat monitoring platforms and technologies have emerged over the last several years. However, many organizations don’t have the staff to support that technology. Regardless of what monitoring platform you have deployed, we will help you monitor events, triage and escalate as needed, and even provide incident response support. We can also help you choose the right platform that suites your needs if you are still in the beginning stages of threat monitoring program.
How Are We Raising the Bar?
World-class industrial cybersecurity services from some of the most experienced and trusted professionals in the industry.
Few people in the world have more industrial cybersecurity experience than our experts. In addition to each having more than 10 years of experience, they are frequent presenters at industry conferences, ICS community contributors, and published authors. You could say that we wrote the book on industrial cybersecurity… Literally, because we did. More than one.
A new, mentoring style approach to industrial cybersecurity and cyber risk management.
Effective industrial cyber risk management requires more than just “threat monitoring”, “one-off” vulnerability assessments and penetration tests, and “best practices”. It also requires an entire program built on sound strategies. We understand that, often times, organizations just need guidance with their programs and strategies. Don’t know where to start? Need help “getting your head around it all”? Or, maybe you just don’t have the skills or staff? From assessments and penetration testing to entire cybersecurity and cyber risk program management support, we will be there to help you at every step, educating you and your staff along the way.
Industrial cyber threat monitoring support, regardless of the technology and platform you use.

An innovative and modernized approach to practical industrial cybersecurity training.
Traditional training methods such as Computer-Based Training (CBT) and instructor-lead classroom training using a combination of lectures slides are outdated and often provide only marginal effectiveness. Even training that leverages physical hands-on labs are limited by cost, lack of scalability, and portability requirements. However, by combining cutting-edge computer gaming technology and techniques with advanced simulation graphics and technology, we have created a unique and innovative training platform that scalable and portable, but also extremely realistic and immersive. The result is a modernized approach to training that is extremely effective… as well as ENTERTAINING!
We are revolutionizing the way you learn cybersecurity!
Cyber security training is offered in a variety of formats from instructor-led training to computer-based training (CBT). People learn in different ways and there is hardly a substitute for quality instructor-led and hands-on training, but there are several downsides to these traditional training methods.
CBTs are often "dry" and boring, causing employees to rush through them. As a result, their ability to learn and retain the information presented is significantly diminished. Instructor-led training is usually time-consuming and costly, which is not optimal, or even viable in many cases, for resource-constrained organizations and individuals.
Immersive gamification and simulation offers an effective alternative that is engaging and... entertaining! You might have heard the term "gamification". However, we aren't just talking about points, badges, trivia, or even capture the flag (CTF). ThreatGEN's immersive and interactive gamification and simulation (a.k.a. "gamulation") puts the students right in the middle of a fun, engaging story-line and environment where they participate in the narrative (often in competition with other students), performing the skills and actions as they would in real life. There have been several studies conducted about the positive effectiveness and success of gamification, but we don't need studies to tell us that when we are presented with something entertaining we will naturally be more interested and engaged. Combine this fact with an immersive environment where learners are part of the action, their decisions have immediate consequences and rewards, and you have a more effective training method. This not only improves knowledge retention but learners will actually enjoy it! Because of the natural adversarial environment and consequence-based decisions, cyber security is a perfect subject for gamification.
ThreatGEN™ offers revolutionary cyber security training using the same cutting-edge gaming technology actually being used in the computer and console gaming industry! Our courses are engaging and effective, and come at a much lower cost to your time and budget.
