USCC-IMAGE-3About: USCC Summer Camps feature one week of specialized cybersecurity training that includes workshops, a job fair, and a culminating “Capture the Flag” competition.  The workshops are lead by college faculty, top SANS Institute instructors, and cybersecurity experts from the community.  The workshops and presentations focus on a variety of topics ranging from intrusion detection, penetration testing and forensics.  Participants can also participate in a job fair that provides them the opportunity to meet with USCC sponsors and discuss potential employment.  The weeklong program ends with a competitive “Capture the Flag” competition and an awards ceremony attended by notables in the cybersecurity industry and government.

Qualification: Prospective participants must compete in the qualifying Cyber Quests online competition in April to earn a spot at a summer USCC Summer Camp. Camp participation is only offered to United States citizens.  Camp spaces are limited, competitive and by invitation only, so sign up for the Cyber Quests competition to test your cyber skills and advance your journey toward becoming a “Cyber Security Defender!”
