AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) – Dozens of people got hands on experience in defending against cyber attacks at the Georgia Cyber Center in Augusta Thursday and Friday.

The Cybersecurity Workforce Academy hosted a cyber attack and defend wargame course.

Teams were pitted against each other and were put on both the attack and defense in a simulated cyber attack.

Sarah Rees, director of the Cybersecurity Workforce Academy at the Georgia Cyber Center, says: “When the heat gets turned up, it kind of induces that stress so that it’s more like a real life event. So it really gives people a feeling of what cyber security and cyber warfare feels like even if they don’t work in that space.”
