Summer Cybersecurity Camp Hosted by Ferris Information Security and Intelligence Program
July 12, 2017
The Information Security and Intelligence (ISI) program recently hosted their first Cybersecurity summer camp for high school students at Ferris State University.
Students with no prior Cybersecurity experience investigated a cyber crime scene through the eyes of a digital forensic analyst. They gained insight into what it is like to be a cyber investigator through hands on activities and practice led by professors from our nationally recognized cyber security program. The camp concluded with the solving of the cyber crime, team activities surrounding password cracking and cryptology, as well as a mock courtroom where the digital forensics evidence was presented and defended.
Professors Jason Otting and Gerald Emerick led the camp along with four ISI student counselors. The camp was attended by high school students from around the state and some from outside of the state of Michigan.
