• CU Boulder uses local program to ‘gamify’ cybersecurity learning

    There are more than 300,000 job openings in the cybersecurity industry nationwide right now, and more than 10,000 openings in Colorado alone.

    This is one reason why Circadence, a Boulder-based firm that creates learning platforms for cybersecurity, created Project Ares, which “gamifies” the cybersecurity learning experience.

    “It’s an exciting career path for students, not just because it’s rapidly evolving … but for the job options and the opportunities for students that have some experience in cybersecurity,” said Brad Wolfenden, director of cyber academic partnerships at Circadence.
