According to Cybersecurity Ventures, a private consulting firm, by 2021 there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs (Morgan, 2019). To address this gap, there is a need for a quick and interactive course to introduce younger students to the basics of cybersecurity and promote interest in the field. Introsec is an informational program that will introduce users to the realm of cybersecurity. This web application consists of a series of interactive gamified learning opportunities that will help students develop skills that are relevant to their personal cybersecurity and the broader industry. Introsec provides a fast, fun, and effective way to get hands-on experience without needing to commit to a long camp or series of courses. We have created a web application that provides students with cybersecurity education through multiple scenario-based games.
