HelpYouPwnUs is a web-based application dedicated to helping people looking to obtain impactful skills in the offensive security industry. According to studies from 2020, 93% of organizations stated that they would “benefit from an increase in skilled staffing” (Cyber-Edge, 2020); hands on training is currently in high demand. The HelpYouPwnUs website application acts as a security awareness and practical usage tool. It guides users through immersive lab modules constructed to educate on topics such as local file inclusion (LFI), SQL injection (SQLi), and other web-based attacks. There are lab options for more experienced users to further educate and challenge their capabilities. The overall mission of HelpYouPwnUs is to provide an immersive and self-paced learning environment to users with a wide range of security knowledge and skill sets.
