Cybersecurity Principles and Practice

Cybersecurity Principles and Practice
Already have some cybersecurity experience and interested in improving your knowledge? This week-long summer course is designed for middle and high school students who have competed in a CyberPatriot competition or have previous exposure to cybersecurity through course work or other activities. The course combines hands on challenges with conceptual concepts. According to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, a cybersecurity plan should include identification of key assets, deployment of protection mechanisms, detection for when protection fails, techniques to respond to incidents, and a way to recover back to a secure state. For students already on a CyberPatriot team, this course can help your team become more competitive and helps you better understand a broader range of cybersecurity issues.

- Open to middle and high school students from any Colorado school
- Participants should have no or little prior experience with Cybersecurity and/or Cyberpatriots
- Includes a field trip to the University of Colorado-Boulder campus
