The UA Little Rock Cyber Arena provides massively scalable cloud-based cybersecurity workouts (problems and threat exercises) appropriate for every level of the cybersecurity workforce pipeline. We provide realistic, hands-on activities in a variety of cyber-security subjects areas to reinforce security learning objectives and develop the skills needed to protect the nation’s critical infrastructure.


Provide all students with access to state-of-the-art educational technology in cybersecurity.    


We are providing an open and
online collaborative platform on which educators can develop cybersecurity workouts. There are no barriers to students learning the skills required of cybersecurity professionals. We are opening the field of cybersecurity to a diverse workforce, engaging students at all levels, and providing hands-on training in emerging technologies.

The Cyber Arena workouts will be available to all Arkansas High Schools this Fall within the online Cyber Security courses through Virtual Arkansas.
