AFA Cyber Camp Summer 2018

About 34 students attended our AFA CyberCamp at Cisco Building 11 at 350 East Tasman Drive.  The camp ran from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM every day, from June 18th until June 22nd.  Middle and high school students were taught how to keep their phones and laptops safe in the modern era from digital attacks, such as malware, trojans, and spyware.  They learned important cyber defense skills through hands-on instruction and activities.  The camp also inspired students to learn about cybersecurity and STEM career opportunities.

Throughout the camp, students learned how to protect their personal devices and information from outside threats, as well as how to harden entire networks running Windows 7 and Ubuntu operating systems.  The AFA CyberCamp culminated in an exciting final team competition that simulated real cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals, mimicing the AFA’s CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.  Great job to all the students who attended!
