Come learn about the exciting world of cybersecurity at UB's GenCyber Computer Summer Camp. Each day, you will participate in many hands-on computer activities to learn about different cybersecurity topics.  All of these activities prepare you for the final day of camp, when you attempt to defend the UB GenCyber network from a simulated cyber-attack.


The tentative camp dates for this year are June 26-30, 2017.
