Cybersecurity - White Hackers
What exactly is the internet? How is it built, and is it secure? Students become aware of their digital-selves online and understand how to protect their identity and their data. They also learn how data can be encrypted and that cryptography was used way before computers were invented. How do companies secure their data and what exactly are malware, viruses, and anti-viruses?
During this program, they will also learn about the power of algorithms and how they can get to the same outcome using different solutions.
Finally, students are introduced to programming languages to create an encrypter/decrypter program. They send each others coded messages and become cyber super hero.
Cybersecurity is a important subject in today's society and provides multiple career opportunities. As teenagers spend majority of their time on the internet, it is crucial that they are aware of how to preserve their true identity and keep their data safe.
