In the summer of 2019, the Institute for Security, Technology and Society (ISTS) will convene two summer programs for high school students on the Dartmouth College campus. The programs explore current interdisciplinary research in cybersecurity and privacy. As our nation’s critical infrastructure, political processes, and businesses come under cyber-attack, there is an ever-increasing need to educate more students to enable expansion of our cybersecurity workforce.

The INTRODUCTORY program runs Monday, July 8th - Friday, July 12th 2019 and will focus on: cryptography, digital forensics, privacy, and security awareness. Lessons will integrate lectures with hands-on and interactive activities, augmented with field trips and guest speakers. 

The ADVANCED program runs Monday July, 29th - Friday, August 2rd 2019 and will expand from the base that was laid by the introductory course and will appeal to those with a solid understand of basic cybersecurity concepts who are looking to expand their knowledge.

The programs are not residential – there is no on campus lodging, but lunch will be provided in Dartmouth's main dining facility. *Please also note that students may apply to one or the other program, not both.

Adam Goldstein, professor of cybersecurity at Champlain College and ten-year veteran of Dartmouth’s Information Technology Consulting Group, will lead this year's programs. Adam, besides being keenly interested in teaching cybersecurity fundamentals, also has years of experience implementing information security programs and projects. We are indeed fortunate to have Adam lead these programs. Topics to be covered will include: 

  • Cybersecurity First Principles
  • 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 networks (e.g., through intrusion detection), systems, and humans

The programs combine 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 the ISTS, participants are requested to complete an outreach project of their own design to spread the word about cybersecurity. Examples of outreach projects can be found here. Click here to view scenes from our 2017 GenCyber camp!

There is no charge – these community outreach programs are generously funded by Dartmouth College and the GenCyber program, a partnership between the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation to help young people learn about cybersecurity and how cybersecurity knowledge can be of benefit in the future. 

Dartmouth College, the ISTS, and the GenCyber Program know that the best learning happens in a classroom filled with multiple perspectives and experiences. Thus, we are looking for the most diverse applicant pool possible. Computer science experience is not required for the introductory program. We are looking for students who are interested and passionate. Per GenCyber regulations, program participants must be United States Citizens and be enrolled in a United States high school or be home-schooled.

INTRODUCTORY Program: Monday, July 8th - Friday, July 12th 2019
ADVANCED Program: Monday July, 29th - Friday, August 2rd 2019

Applications, including a teacher recommendation, are due by midnight, Monday April 15, 2019.
