This camp is dedicated to the memory of

Past instructor and Dartmouth PhD student.


This July, on the Dartmouth campus, the Institute for Security, Technology and Society (ISTS) is offering a summer workshop for high school students.  The workshop will explore 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

Please note that this workshop is a day program only - there is no on-campus lodging provided. 

Adam Goldstein will lead this year's workshop.  Adam is the IT Security Engineer with Peter Kiewit Computing Services at Dartmouth College, 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)
     o Systems
     o Humans

The program will mix in lectures with hands-on and interactive activities, augmented with field trips and guest speakers.  Dartmouth graduate students and undergraduates will help lead activities and act as mentors and 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 and the Department of Defense's Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP), 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.


There is no charge for this program.  Applications, including a teacher recommendation, are due April 22nd.
