Montana summer camp teaches teens cyber security

Posted: Jun 12, 2018 8:27 PM Updated:

GREAT FALLS - Teenagers from around the state are learning about computers and cybersecurity through Great Falls College MSU.

The summer camp is for those interested in pursuing a career in cybersecurity through the Center for Lifelong Learning.

This is the first time the college has offered its CyberCamp, which was developed by the Air Force Association as part of the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Education Program.

The department head for computer technology at the college said this type of camp is rewarding for the teens.

“They’re intrigued with the security side of cyber, so to be able to learn more about it then compete at the end of the week in a competition, they are able to get excited about STEM and cyber security and cyber technology,” said Chris Mee.

The students will also learn basic skills for future CyberPatriot competitions. During the CyberPatriot competitions, teams are given an image of a complete operating system or a network.

They then run through scenarios to change the security levels and specific attributes of those systems to protect them from outside threats.
