Introducing the CrowdForce

The c-Market is a collaborative effort between the Cyber Resilience Institute (CRI) and CyberUSA. We have recently joined forces as an Arizona registered B-Corporation, CrowdForce, Inc.

Our Mission is as follows:

“The primary mission of this benefit corporation is to create a material positive impact on society by creating an economic development benefit to local and regional communities through market facilitation, organization and stimulation. It further seeks to stimulate jobs in local and regional communities through workforce development.”

The c-Watch is a community workforce program that affords learners to improve skills by joining a cadre of hunters and analysts, to support university and community cyber initiatives, to earn income from staff augmentation and out-sourced research, and to help in a national effort to build a Public-Private repository of adversary attack campaigns and malicious infrastructure. Graduates of the program that successfully complete program requirements may be nominated to the CrowdWatch cadre’ of threat hunters.

Moving forward, the CrowdForce, an Arizona B-Corporation, will be the primary sponsor of both the c-Watch and the CrowdWatch programs aimed at crowdsourcing cyber threat intelligence collection and analysis. The CrowdForce will provide an apprentice workforce to support the national information sharing effort conducted by ISAOs (Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations). It is our goal to support CyberUSA Members and veteran retraining programs.

CrowdForce will also enable participating university clubs and supporting universities to conduct research and participate in hunting competitions under our other programs.

To join The CrowdWatch cadre’, the prerequisite is successful completion of a c-Watch Training program.  Enroll now to join the Spring 2018 Course and the 2018 World Cup Pop-up SOC!
