Summer Camp in Portuguese and Spanish Cybersecurity Concepts for High School Students
The University of Washington Language Learning Center (LLC)
in collaboration with the UW Center for Information Assurance and Cybersecurity (CIAC)
, and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies
is offering a unique summer camp that combines the areas of cybersecurity and language education in Portuguese for high school students. This 2021 program is funded by the U.S. National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.
Participants will explore the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)
Cybersecurity Workforce Framework and resources such as Cyberseek.org. These resources will introduce students to the incredible demand and opportunities the field offers, as well as the diversity of sub-disciplines they might pursue. The ‘Essentials of Cybersecurity’ series ends with a module on ‘Finding Your Cybersecurity Career Path’ and then helps the student construct their ‘Job Outlook’.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus the 2020 summer program will be deferred to 2021. Please check back in early 2021 for more details.
