Red Team Architect Training

Ready to challenge your skills? Getting ready for a CTF or a Cyber Challenge?

Train With CyberQ Skill Pack Challenges

CyberQ Skillpacks are designed to test your skills in a variety of different challenges with limited guidance. Each challenge runs independently as its own “Self-Paced Capture the Flag.” Launching a Skill Pack challenge will reserve your very own space in our CyberQ Data Center, we will raise the Attack Console, as well as the down-range vulnerable targets for you to practice and challenge your skills.


Each challenge includes a set of distinct challenge flags, in order to solve the flags you must perform a variety of procedures in the target environment including basic host discovery, service discovery, vulnerability analysis, attack procedures, privilege escalation, and more.


Please note, this is not a learning lab. Skill packs are designed intentionally with challenges, puzzles, and preconfigured targets that will test your ability to identify, analyze, exploit, and own the targets. If you are new to Cyber and have never participated in a cyber challenge or competition, Skill packs may be too advanced. So, feel free to browse our learning productsif this describes you, however, if you are ready for a challenge, enjoy solving complex puzzles and testing your limits, CyberQ challenges are a great way to hone your trade craft.
