DELAWARE CYBER SECURITY CAMP 2016
A U.S. Cyber Challenge Event You Missed it!

Check back in the spring of 2017 for information on Delaware's next cyber security camp.


What

Weeklong day camp for students comprised of cyber security workshops, labs, and a competition held on the last day. The camp will focus on topics such as intrusion detection, penetration, and forensics. Workshops will be taught by instructors from the SANS Institute, the largest source for information security training and certification in the world.  The overall objective is to attract as many talented and skilled people as possible to this field of study and career path.

Who

College and graduate students and high school students. Students need to have completed their sophomore year of high school by the time of the camp. Campers under 18 years of age will need a parent's consent to attend the camp.

Camp alumni may compete again, but priority for camp positions will go to non-alumni. Camp alumni are encouraged to volunteer to be camp teaching assistants.

Eligibility & Qualification

Eligibility and Qualification for the Delaware Summer Camp is determined by the results of the 2016 online Cyber Quests program. This is a fun but challenging on-line competitions allowing participants to demonstrate their knowledge in a variety of information security realms. Each challenge features an artifact for analysis, along with a series of quiz questions. Some focus on a potentially vulnerable sample web server as the artifact, challenging participants to identify its flaws using vulnerability analysis skills. Others are focused around forensic analysis, packet capture analysis, and more. They have varying levels of difficulty and complexity, with some geared toward beginners, while others include more intermediate and ultimately advanced material.
