Basic Cybersecurity Camp

Basic Cybersecurity Camp at Embry-Riddle Daytona beach

This one-week program is designed to teach students, ages 14 - 18, the fundamental concepts of cybersecurity such as confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Students will learn the basics of networking and some commonly exploited vulnerabilities. The program will cover a survey of open-source reconnaissance as well as tools used for testing/attacking systems. Students will be introduced to the basics of cryptography as well as steganography (hiding messages inside other messages).  Participating students will perform some attacks against services (such as web server) set up in the Cybersecurity Engineering Lab (CybEL) and will learn the complete life-cycle of cyber-attacks through exercises and challenges.

Tuition is $950 and includes supervised housing, on-campus meals, classroom instruction, books, and materials. Advanced Registration discount of $50 is applied to all completed application packets that are received by April 4, 2019.

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.
