CyberDefenders is a training platform for blue teams created by Muhammad Alharmeel and Ahmed Shawky, focused on the defensive side of cybersecurity.

The platform aims to provide a place for defenders, security analysts, and DFIR folks to practice with quality resources and validate their skills through a set of hands-on challenges and labs.

The idea came through when we noticed the absence of a "user-friendly" training platform for BlueTeams. There are tons of useful resources, but they are scattered, use different formats, and, most importantly, take a lot of time to setup. Our goal is to help community members practice with quality resources, use their time efficiently, and connect with fellow professionals.

Another thing we hope to achieve is to help defenders market their skills by building challenges for others to play. Away from being an effective way to share knowledge, creating challenges in itself is a great learning experience and a proven way to build your own brand.

We encourage people to create and submit challenges, and we will publish it under their names. If you master a specific BlueTeam skill, why not let others know about it, be it SIEM, log analysis, PCAP analysis, reversing, forensics, or engineering. Trust us; the community is hungry for quality resources.

If you have something in mind but do not where or how to start, please feel free to get in touch, and we will be more than happy to help.

Finally, we are thankful for the support we receive from the community. It's what keeps us going. If you have a suggestion, comment, or even a complaint, please do not hesitate to communicate it openly. Community feedback is truly helpful for us.
