“Cybersecurity is one of today’s hottest technical fields, with some experts forecasting a shortage of up to 1 million of trained professionals in the coming years. Careers in cybersecurity can be incredibly rewarding, high paying, and are in demand worldwide in just about every industry.

The camp’s goal is to provide motivated high school students with a hands-on, introductory experience to cybersecurity principles, including hands-on implementation of cybersecurity policies and practices in Windows and Ubuntu operating systems.  These are core skills applicable in any cybersecurity career, as well as providing students with an “on-ramp” to further high-school educational cybersecurity activities such as the “capture the flag” competitions.”
