Learn about the exciting world of cybersecurity at UB's GenCyber Camp. Campers participate in hands-on computer activities to learn about different cybersecurity topics. On the final day of camp, students attempt to defend a network of computers from a simulated cyber-attack!

About the camp

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