Bozeman, Montana Cyber Security Summer Institute Camp 2023
The Montana Cybersecurity Summer Initiative (CSI)camp is designed to introduce Montana middle school and high school students to the world of Cybersecurity. We understand that there are risks in the world, we lock our doors, and are aware of our surroundings. We try to avoid dangerous behaviors, like drinking and driving, or going out in the snow without a coat, because we are aware of the risk. But what happens when you don't know the risks? What happens when you are engaged in dangerous behavior online and you don't even know it?
Learn how to protect yourself and others from 'cyber-criminals'. These criminals attack everyone and the only way to protect yourself is to be aware of the risks you take when you are online. Every time you log onto a computer or smartphone you can easily be a target of identity theft or ransomware.
Our week-long, day camp will introduce you to Windows and the Linux systems. You'll learn about how networks work, file management and how to ward off criminals! We'll discuss cyber-hygiene and security techniques used by the top companies in the world. And we'll even have a competition at the end to see how well you can use these skills to keep yourself safe! Even if you have no knowledge about computers, it's a great way to learn new skills and techniques to protect yourself.
This camp will take place June 12-16.
