Velocity Hub of the Michigan Cyber Range
Inaugurated in 2016, the Velocity Hub of the Michigan Cyber Range, powered by the Merit Network, is the first publicly-accessible hub of its kind serving businesses in the State of Michigan. The Velocity Hub was developed by the Macomb-Oakland University INCubator in collaboration with the Michigan Defense Center of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development and the City of Sterling Heights. This secure, unclassified hub has a focus on certificate training courses for more than 20 cyber-security disciplines, in-depth product-validation penetration testing on early-stage connected products with security best-practice checklist reviews, and rentable virtual space within the secure-sandbox environment. The Macomb-Oakland University INCubator houses and manages the Velocity Hub in the Velocity Center of Sterling Heights at 6633 Eighteen Mile Road.

A new Cyber Range Hub at Wayne State University provides lab space for cybersecurity training, testing and teaching, ensuring the region’s workforce and students have the tools needed to expand skills and provide employers with the proficient and prepared workforce that makes southeastern Michigan a technological powerhouse.
The Michigan Cyber Range prepares cybersecurity professionals to detect, prevent and mitigate cyber-attacks in a real-world setting. Like a test track or a firing range, the Michigan Cyber Range enables individuals and organizations to conduct “live fire” exercises: simulations that test the detection and reaction skills of participants in a variety of situations. The Michigan Cyber Range also offers certification courses for a number of cybersecurity disciplines, with instruction available on-site and live online.
