About Us…

Virtual Cyber Studios, LLC (VCS) exists to develop, refine and sell customized, cutting-edge 3D / Virtual Reality (3D/VR) simulations centered on cyber security and personal high-risk situational education and training. We believe 3D / VR simulations will make a significant impact on the business operations and training landscape.

As an example, our Violent Intruder – Classroom product simulates a classroom environment in which decisions need to be made by the instructor/teacher to ensure the safety of all the students. This simulation is presented only from the instructor’s/teacher’s point of view. The participant hears the Active Shooter’s activities and attempts, but never actually sees the shooter or the damage inflicted.
