Baltimore's Point3 Security, Inc. disrupts the cybersecurity education model with Escalate™ | A brand new education platform launching on Cyber Monday

Nov. 27, 2017 / PRZen / BALTIMORE -- Point3 Security, Inc. is changing how we learn and teach cybersecurity through a digital learning environment called Escalate™—Released to the public TODAY.

By placing students on keyboard 80% of the time— rather than in lecture. This unique approach of a learner-centric curriculum nurtures task completion resiliency, and is proven to increase lesson retention and operational readiness. Students from 1st IO, The US Naval Academy, 1st SWTG, ARCYBER, Army Research Lab, DC3, GA Army National Guard, USCYBERCOM, INSCOM, and the DHS Cyber Division share this model with success.

The program was developed as a classroom course in collaboration with Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, and the Department of Defense. Point3 created the Cyber Operations Academy Course (COAC) at the City Colleges of Chicago, which aided in Chicago being named the safest digital city in the U.S. by The Economist Intelligence Unit. Point3 founder and former NSA employee, Evan Dornbush, began looking to increase the reach of the program immediately following the civilian success in Chicago. He wanted to create an online platform to increase the accessibility, and decrease the cost of cybersecurity education.

Point3's Privilege Partnership program, currently in place in Chicago and Baltimore, invites brands that share our nation's interest in cybersecurity and Point3's commitment to community outreach, to play an active role in building programs for our returning military vets, and sponsoring Escalate™ member scholarships. The direct support from partners will prepare a top-tier class of qualified candidates for our government, corporations, small businesses, and our communities.
