Chicago’s rise as most cyber-secure city in the United States credited to Baltimore tech startup Point3 Security, Inc., DoD. by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)

Chicago lands at the top of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) Safe Cities Index, as the most cyber-secure city in the United States, and third in the world, behind Tokyo and Singapore.

With the success of Escalate in Chicago’s City College, and having received highest marks from the intelligence community and student members, Point3 has been green-lighted to introduce program availability in additional college curriculum across the country. The date of the much anticipated commercial release of Escalate, is, accordingly, Cyber Monday, November 27, 2017.

Co-founder, Evan Dornbush, has hinted of a pre-release sale option being explored given early demand. Point3 has made reserving a free a demo version of Escalate available at https://www.ittakesahuman.com.

About Point3 Security, Inc.
Since our inception, Point3 Security, Inc. has continued to disrupt the cybersecurity and defense education industry by dismantling the traditional classroom education model, and developing a gamified, proven, challenge-based ecosystem. Escalate™, our challenge based ecosystem, introduces hands-on-keyboard capture-the-flag tasks which mentor, train, and teach members master tradecraft to malware reverse engineering, network security, disk and memory forensics, vulnerability research, offensive and defensive operations, and operational software development — skills sought by the U.S. Government, and equally rewarded in the private/commercial sector through immediate senior level salary, job security, and genuine job satisfaction. Unlike participants in expensive cyber boot-camp gimmicks, and generic cybersecurity certificate curriculums riddling the net, Escalate™ members continue to be identified as the gold-standard of the cybersecurity and defense industry by government agency recruiters, and commercial sector head-hunters. Our award-winning method is recognized. The success of our members is measured and proven. Our process is validated. Point3 Security Inc. didn’t just challenge the industry standard; it redefined it.
