Level 2 - Played on local Linux image with root
Level 3 - Attack a DMZ
Level 4 - Pivot to intranet
Level 5 - Master of your domain... castle versus castle

"The best programs don't think of cyber as an event. The best programs weave together training and career paths. The hunger for these people who are well-trained is so great that they'll constantly be in high demand."- Alan Paller, director of research at the SANS Institute
