GenCyber Camps for Students in Montana
With the digital world at our fingertips at nearly all times, cybersecurity knowledge is essential for Montanans of all ages. We're helping students in 6th-8th grade start learning about cybersecurity early through our NSA Sponsored GenCyber Summer Institutes.
In April, Missoula College and Great Falls College held their 2023 GenCyber Summer Institutes. The Institutes included of 8 weeks of online sessions, 1 week of in-person sessions, then closing with 8 additional online sessions.
GenCyber Camps are completely free, but space is limited. Early registration is encouraged. Keep an eye out for next's year's registration information.
A primary goal of the institute is to foment interest in cybersecurity and technology and create a future pipeline into the fields of cybersecurity specifically and technology in general.
The activities include:
- Hands-on exercises
- Secure communications
- System vulnerabilities
- System exploitation
