Cyber Boot Camp for Tomorrow’s Cyber Defenders

select students from three different San Diego high schools will converge on the ESET building in Little Italy for a week of intensive education in the art of defending computer systems. They call it Cyber Boot Camp, and two dozen students will experience five days of hands-on instruction, plus lectures from leading cyber security experts from San Diego companies as well as local and national law enforcement. The fact that cyber crime is on the rise will come as no surprise if you recently received a notice from a store or bank saying it’s time to change your password or get a new credit card. The resulting surge in demand for skilled cyber security professionals is reflected in projected 2013/14 employment growth in San Diego County of 13 percent for cyber security firms, more than six times the overall projected employment growth for the county. Cyber Boot Camp is one more reason that San Diego is achieving global recognition as a cyber center of excellence.Continue Reading
