    Gain a deep understanding of cybersecurity this summer and take your cybersecurity into your own hands, including learning how to safeguard computers and digital devices, protect personal data, and detect the most common methods used by hackers and cybercriminals. Once you have completed the program you will be prepared to take the official ISECOM Certified Hacker Analyst certification exam. Open to high school students

    So much of our lives are online, from shopping to keeping up with friends even applying for college—and cyber criminals know it. Our cybersecurity bootcamp is a chance for high school students to learn how to stay one step ahead of criminals and but also get ahead within the fast-growing growing high potential industry of cybersecurity.

    This 2- week online course, developed in partnership with the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies (ISECOM) and taught by Quinnipiac’s own Information Security professionals, teaches the high school students cybersecurity fundamentals and skills to not only keep their identity and personal devices safe from attackers, but understand what “hacking”—the ability to figure out computer systems—is all about.

    Specific topics covered will are internet infrastructure, malware, attack analysis, digital forensics, email safety, and web security and privacy. This knowledge isn’t only essential, but incredibly valuable to employers in almost every field all over the world.
