This camp will introduce students to the foundations of cybersecurity, including but not limited to personal and home security, network security, cyber law, and encryption. Students will be introduced to virtual machines and the Linux command line. Online activities and labs will engage students throughout the week. Students with prior cyber and Linux experience will be better served through our Deeper Dive camps.
***NOTE*** This camp WILL NOT provide the requisite knowledge and practice time with Linux that students need for the more advanced camp offerings. It is designed to pique student interest in cyber-related high school courses and extracurricular activities. Students with prior cyber camp or classroom experience will be better served through our other cyber camps.
