The Joint Cyber Range was started in 2020 as a collaboration between the Haagse Hogeschool and the Hogeschool Utrecht, when experience showed how effective gamified cybersecurity education could be. However, building, and especially maintaining, the facilities required proved to be not so easy, and in fact surpasses the capabilities of an individual school.
With initial support from SURF, student teams from these and other schools established working prototypes at first and then extended them into a more scalable service. Now we are joining forces on a national platform.
One of the first public achievements was the 1st national scholencompetitie where more than 60 participants from 27 teams (mostly from high schools) competed.
For the current version of the scholencompetitie look here.
Currently, we are on track to further cement our place as the premier national educational cybersecurity platform.
