GenCyber 2017

2017 ISTS GenCyber Group Shot

Friday, July 14th was the final day and wrap up of our 2017 ISTS GenCyber Summer High School Cybersecurity Program.  The week-long program, held on the campus of Dartmouth College, provided 24 exceptionally qualified high school students from the local area and across the country with insight on issues of security, including cryptography, Human Factors in Computer Security, Vulnerability Management, Network Defense, Cybersecurity First Principles, and Cybersecurity Careers. The week included lectures with hands-on, interactive activities and labs, augmented with IT facility tours and guest speakers. In keeping with the outreach mission of ISTS, participants are requested to complete an outreach project of their own design to spread the word about cyber security. (Read Caroline Balick’s account of her week here Dartmouth this summer:

Many thanks to our excellent instructor, Professor Adam Goldstein, and teaching assistant, Katie Orenstein, for sharing your knowledge, helping these young people learn about cybersecurity, and demonstrating how skills in that area can pay off in the future. 

GenCyber LogoFunding for the ISTS GenCyber program comes from the National Science Foundation and the National Security Agency, with additional support from Dartmouth College. This community outreach program is offered at no charge to the students. Additional information about the program can be found on the GenCyber website:
