ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue Challenge 
 
Which side will you choose? The hackers (red team) or the cyber defenders (blue team)? Hint: You get to take turns doing both! Battle head-to-head in turn-based cyber warfare, where the fate of a company's computers, network, information, and even critical industrial control systems hang in the balance.  
 
It's the CTF (Capture the Flag) FOR EVERYONE! 
 
Traditional cybersecurity CTFs involve solving a variety of (often technical) challenges, which earn the players points. ThreatGEN Red vs. Blue brings capture the flag back to what it was historically meant to be… team-on-team, infiltration style, competition! 
 
Game Play 
 
ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue is a turn-based strategy game played much like popular global domination board games. Rather than a world map, the "game board" consists of a computer network, which players compete for control over. It’s simple and easy to learn. Instead of simulated computer terminals, players choose and commit actions using "action cards" similar to a trading card game. 
 
It's Not Just a Game: Learn Real-World Cybersecurity! Sharpen your knowledge! 
 
Developed by Clint Bodungen and Aaron Shbeeb, authors of Hacking Exposed: Industrial Control Systems and experienced cybersecurity professional Matthew Anderson, ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue is the first ever multiplayer computer game designed to actually teach real-world cybersecurity! Players compete against each other, head-to-head, to take control/maintain control of a computer network. Learn how hackers think, operate, and attack systems by playing the part of the red team (no prior skills necessary)! Play the part of the blue team and learn about real cybersecurity controls, technology, methods, and strategies! ThreatGEN®: Red vs. Blue is also the only training tool in the world that exercises practical application of “higher-level” and more strategic concepts such as building cybersecurity programs, risk mitigation strategy, and more.
