Secure Information Systems Mentoring and Training (SISMAT) - A Cyber Security Bootcamp for Community College Students

This video was produced by SISMAT Class of 2010 graduate Remy Neymarc and his brother Andrew through their company NeymarcVisuals.
(Note that some of the scenes use actors to portray instructors and participants and that certain scenes are not actually at Dartmouth's facilities.)

Why SISMAT? 

Information security experts in a variety of business, government, and non-profit sectors lament that they have a hard time hiring new employees; in particular, it's difficult to find recent college graduates with the necessary cyber security skills and experience. Unfortunately, many colleges cannot offer their students the hands-on training or prolonged study in secure systems that would meet this critical, growing need. SISMAT aims to fill this gap and help students get the training they need; in other words, we provide the tools necessary to become a security expert.

Utilizing grant funding from the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technical Education program awarded to River Valley Community College, we are exclusively targeting community colleges to provide an intense, "bootcamp" style training program in cyber security.  

Acceptance to the program will be based on the following priority: 1) students from River Valley Community College, 2) students from the Community College System of New Hampshire, and 3) students from other community colleges.

What is SISMAT?

You will spend two weeks in residence at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH for a fun and intensive training course.

  • Industry and academic experts will teach you about cryptography, PKI, network security, and other topics.

  • You will immediately apply this information by experimenting with real-world programs and toolsets.

  • The course, room and board are provided free of charge.

  • As a SISMAT student you will also receive reference books that will be useful throughout the program and beyond.

SISMAT 2016 will take place June 21 - July 1.   See the application page for information on how to apply.

 Additional Information

 

NSFFunding for SISMAT is now provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technical Education Program. The SISMAT program was initially made possible through funding from the Department of Homeland Security's National Cyber Security Division.
