SANS – the global leader in cybersecurity training and certification – is hosting our next SANS+HBCU Cyber Ranges competition - Black History Month Edition! This is a FOUR DAY event from Friday, Feb 19, 2021 through Monday Feb 22, 2021. The range will be open for competition on February 19th at 9 am ET and will remain open, around the clock, until it officially closes on February 22nd at 6 pm ET. Participants should feel free to come and go as they please. The Cyber Range will be open around the clock for 81 hours to provide maximum flexibility.
