About The Collaborator

During the Summer of 2012, the IT Security company HackingAway.org received funding from the Canadian government FedDev program through the ARI program at Algonquin College. The objective was to develop a cyber-security platform to run educational cyber security challenges.  Students and staff were hired, and a series of cyber challenges was launched.  HackingAway.org was dubbed “The Collaborator” by the bureaucratic process.

At HackingAway.org…

Our mission is to provide unique training for people to keep computer hacking out of their networks. We offer educational, realistic and engaging Cyber Security Challenges to achieve that goal.

Educational, because our Challenges guide participants step-by-step. Our coaches are there to answer questions and enhance the learning.

Hands-on experience enhances both learning and retention.

Realistic, because particpants will engage in “live” attacks that prepare them for the real event. We use the tools that real-world cyber criminals are using, and have virtual networks and hosts that emulate live corporations.

Our Security Challenges train participants for real-life situations.

Engaging, because everyone gets excited about our Cyber Security Challenges! Energized, focused, and fully-engaged participants learn more, and retain it longer, than with ordinary listening or reading exercises.

Competition – more than any other learning environment –  motivates participants to work harder, faster, and stay engaged.
