SCC Cyber Security Summer Camps 2019

Sacramento City College Cyber Security summer camp, for local youth entering the 7th-12th grades, encourages exploration of cyber security as well as the degrees and career paths available at the college level.

Los Rios Community College campuses served up to 10 days of camp this season, with a morning session and an afternoon sessions each day. The camps teach students important skills in cyber safety and cybersecurity principles that are relevant to everyday life. It also highlights some of the cyber threats posed to individuals and the importance of investigation agencies for cyber-attacks. Students receive software and a hands-on curriculum kit to learn about cyber safety, cyber ethics, and critical network security skills such as hacking prevention, system hardening, access control, and system protection. The value of cyber security education is crucial for personal as well as professional needs.

Institutions such as the government, military, education, financial, and medical possess exceptional amounts of sensitive data on computers. Methods of intrusions evolve as technology does so, consequently, demands for cyber security agencies have an upward outlook. Professionals measure and protect organizational networks and systems from the  continual intrusion of ransomware and call for expansion of responsibilities from employees. Well-qualified cyber security candidates are constantly sought after in a large variety of fields as cyber threats ascend. The SCC Cyber Security Summer Camps provide an educated and security-minded base for future matured cyber defense programs along with other cyber security measures that all citizens can benefit from.
