This is for high school students, but maybe some of the folks on this list have kids who have aged out of FLL. It’s a bargain: $195 for five days, breakfast/lunch/snacks included.
Information on the camp (from http://www.infragardncr.org/#!blank/tcy1c):
Always wondered what “cyber attacks” really are? How a special group of cyber warriors protect and defend our banks, stores, and electric plants every second?
Join experts from the FBI and the foremost companies in the nation for the the most hands-on #CYBERcamp in the National Capital Region. Experience:
· how computers and other devices on the Internet connect and communicate with each other
· how the communication among computers on the Internet is captured and how to read/understand this communication
· how computers are programmed internally to allow them to manage, store, process, and render documents and folders
· file system forensics - how to restore, read, and analyze computer files and perform other investigative activities on a computer
· how Windows programs work - what a computer operating system is, and specifically, how the Microsoft Windows operating system works
· Static and Dynamic Analysis - learning how to analyze software code when it is not running/in use, and while it's running/in use - and why that matters
BONUS: PARTICIPATE IN YOUR OWN CYBER ATTACK
InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and the private sector. It is an association of persons who represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the U.S.
I’ve been to a few Infragard events and they’re really good.
