DRI Cybersecurity Bootcamp

Immersive training for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates (all majors welcome!)

Las Vegas Training – January 13-17, 2020

The DRI Cybersecurity Bootcamps will provide workforce development to diverse Nevada students, covering current cyber-threats, techniques attackers use, as well as how to counter those threats. Upon completion of the bootcamp, participants will be equipped with the knowledge on how to protect these types of devices and their underlying infrastructure, and how to “translate” this knowledge to their research group in actionable steps.

During the bootcamps students will be introduced to the increasingly significant area of robot, UAV, sensor, and control system protection. This program will train students during week-long, hands-on workshops that cover the classes of threats, techniques attackers use, as well as how to counter those threats. At the end of the bootcamp, participants will be equipped with knowledge of how to protect these types of devices and their underlying infrastructure. Applications are due November 11, 2019.
