Cybersecurity 101



Grades 5-9 Co-ed Cybersecurity 101 (In-Person)

June 28 through July 2, 2021

1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.



This STEM Academy-Interactive experience is led by top notch Jesuit High School and St. Francis High School students (with full adult supervision.)

In Cybersecurity 101, you are a cybersecurity detective! Using open-source intelligence techniques, students will find personal and private information unintentionally leaked on the Internet, and learn how to protect their own. Navigating different social media sites, they will explore authentication, encryption, PPI (Personal Private Information), and malware. Students will then use these offensive techniques and dive headfirst into defensive measures of security: ciphers and cryptography, password cracking, and digital forensics. The final day of the workshop will be a competitive and engaging scavenger hunt, requiring a fun application of the skills learned in the course.
