About the KC7 Foundation
The KC7 Foundation is a donor-supported cybersecurity education nonprofit dedicated to the vision that learners of all ages and diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to develop cybersecurity skills.
Our mission is to help people obtain these skills for free. We accomplish this by making the KC7 Game freely available to the public online.
Donations to the KC7 Foundation are tax-deductible and go toward the creation of additional KC7 learning modules, to help pay for our servers, services, and staff.
About the KC7 Game
Traditional cybersecurity training and classes often start by teaching abstract concepts that don’t apply directly to real-world scenarios, and rarely give students the opportunity to approach these concepts in a hands-on way. This approach can cause students to lose interest and drop out before they even have a chance to understand the field. KC7, an online cybersecurity game built by threat intelligence experts who have years of experience studying advanced cyber adversaries, takes a different approach.
KC7 introduces cybersecurity concepts in a way that everyone from middle school students through adult learners can understand and get excited about. Players work as cybersecurity analysts to investigate a cyber intrusion against a fictitious organization. During the investigation, they encounter different attack types, capabilities, and frameworks, all while learning general cybersecurity concepts.
