Come learn about the exciting world of cybersecurity at UB's Cybersecurity Camp. Each day, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, campers will participate in hands-on computer activities to learn about different cybersecurity topics. All of these activities will prepare them for the final day, where they will attempt to defend a network of computers from a simulated cyber-attack!

About the camp

The primary purpose of the UB Cybersecurity Camp is to educate students about cybersecurity principles and cybersecurity careers so that students can make well-informed choices about their future college degree plans and careers. As a result, it is our hope that more students will choose to enter the rapidly growing, and high-demand cybersecurity career field.

There are a limited number of spots available. Request more information today!
