Develop A Cybersecurity Camp for High School Students
Whatcom Community College (WCC) has developed a Cybersecurity Center to provide access to Information Security and Information Assurance (IA) resources.
Specific resources at WCC are the College’s Computer Information Systems (CIS) program that includes an Associate in Science (AS) degree, certificates, and stand alone courses that prepare students for positions in the information security field.
WCC is also the only community college in Washington State certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) to map its courses to the 4011 and 4013E standards. In addition, WCC was recently awarded a grant to support the establishment of a CyberWatch West Center to address the shortage of information security professionals.
Information on the National IA Education and Training Program (NIETP), which oversees Information Assurance education standards, can be found here: National Information Assurance Education and Training Program (NIETP).
The WCC Cybercamp has developed a number of useful materials (below) that can be adopted to create a high school cybersecurity camp. The materials were developed through funding from the National Science Foundation.
