Our Cybersecurity Summer Program exposes students to the world of cybersecurity, information technology, encryption techniques, computer programming, and how cyber security and computer science are used by professionals.
The summer program begins with the National Security Agency’s Day Of Cyber, which allows students to experience the day in the life of six security leaders. Students will also complete NSA mentor journeys, cyber challenges, create a Cyber Resume, and earn an NSA Day of Cyber Certificate of Completion.
As the program continues, students will learn more in depth knowledge about cybersecurity. Students will participate in encryption challenges, learn about methods of encryption, such as RSA encryption (widely used to encrypt online information like credit card numbers), and how to use computer code to solve cybersecurity challenges. Students will learn about defining security threats and best security practices, as well as practical knowledge about different operating systems, how cellular and wired data connections work, and how routers work.
