|This camp is dedicated to the memory of
Past instructor and Dartmouth PhD student.
This July 6-10th, on the Dartmouth campus, the Institute for Security, Technology and Society (ISTS) will provided a summer workshop for high school students. The workshop explores current interdisciplinary research in cyber security and privacy. As our nation's critical infrastructure and businesses come under cyber attack, there is an ever-increasing need to educate more students to enable the expansion of our cybersecurity workforce.
The workshop is a day program* only - there is no on-campus lodging or meal plan provided.
Adam Goldstein will lead this year's workshop. Adam is the IT Security Engineer with Dartmouth College Information Technology Services, where he is the technical lead for information security operations and serves as the security adviser on numerous IT projects and working groups.
This program for high school students will include the following topics:
• Introduction to Computer Security and Case Studies
• Ethics Discussion (at the beginning and end of the camp)
• Security in the "Real World"
• Security best practices and security awareness
• Security terminology
• Studies and careers in computer security
• Primers on security as related to:
o Networks (e.g., through intrusion detection)
The program is mixture of lectures with hands-on and interactive activities, augmented with field trips and guest speakers. Members of the College's computing services staff will provide a "behind the scenes" look at security. 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. Descriptions of student projects from the 2012 and 2013 Security Summer Workshop can be seen here and here. Outreach projects from the most recent workshop in 2014 can be seen here.
There is no charge for the workshop – this community outreach program is generously funded by ISTS, the Neukom Institute for Computational Science, and Dartmouth College Information Technology Services.
Applications, including a teacher recommendation, are due March 30, 2015.
Please complete the application form.
Recommendation forms are available for download here (.docx). Recommendations must be emailed to ISTS.
If you have any questions about the program, please email ISTS or call 603.646.0700.
