Cyber Camp

Our campus hosts an annual Standard and Advanced Cyber Camp for high school students every Summer. The Cyber Camp was created to teach students how to protect themselves online and inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. There is a Standard Camp for first time students and the Advanced Camp for the students who already participated in the Standard Camp. Each camp lasts for one week and ends with the students competing in a cyber competition that involves all the material they learned that week. The program is designed to encourage cyber-savvy volunteers to give back to their communities. Multiple RCC students in the Cyber Defense program volunteer for both camps.

Cyber Camps 2023


Girl Scouts

Beginning in 2020, the RCC Cyber Defense Program began hosting a Girl Scout Badge Day where local girl scouts would come in and learn about cybersecurity. They were taught about net safety, cracking codes and passwords, multifactor authentication, and different types of cyber-attacks. This was done by student-led lectures and hands on activities and games. At the end of the day after completing the activities, the girl scouts would earn their cyber badge.



Women in Cybersecurity Conference

Every year, the Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) National Organization hosts an annual conference where members gather and are given access to workshops, speakers, and a career fair filled with hundreds of companies, organizations, and government agencies. Our Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) Student Chapter Club has been attending the conference since 2020 and each time brings back valuable information to their members about potential internships and other resources.
