The Laredo College Cybersecurity
Institute will be offering free cybersecurity summer camps for high school
students through the CyberPatriot Program.
CyberPatriot is the National
Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association to inspire
K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other STEM disciplines. At the
core of the program is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, the
nation’s largest cyber defense competition that puts high school and middle
school students in charge of securing virtual networks.
The AFA CyberCamps that will be
offered at Laredo College this summer are designed for high school students who
are just getting into cybersecurity or who have cybersecurity knowledge and
want to learn more. AFA CyberCamps emphasize fun, hands-on learning of
cybersecurity principles that are relevant and applicable to everyday life.
Through these camps, students
learn the importance of cyber safety and how to protect their personal devices
and information from outside threats. Standard AFA CyberCamps teach beginner
students the basics of cybersecurity, while Advanced AFA CyberCamps incorporate
more complex concepts geared towards students who have previously participated
in a camp or in the cyber defense competition.
