Security Matters Cybercamp 2022 recap
CACR and WonderLab hosted the "Codemakers and Codebreakers" cybersecurity in-person and virtual workshop July 11-15, 2022.
This weeklong in-person and virtual workshop provided middle and high school students with the unique opportunity to learn about cybersecurity from experts. Students were given their own environments in which they were able to use tools and techniques that professionals use to protect and attack computer systems.
The cybercamp covered fundamental topics such as cryptography, cybersecurity careers, cybercrime, data forensics, lockpicking, network security, programming, social engineering, vulnerability testing, and website penetration testing.
These subjects were taught through a hands-on approach with interactive exercises, games, and discussion. This program was made possible through a partnership between the Wonderlab and the Indiana University Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research.
