Coastline's CST Department held its first annual Cyber Defense Camp for high school and middle school students of Orange County. Nearly 90 students attended the week-long camp at Garden Grove Center July 24th-28th to learn about cybersecurity and build their hands-on skills. The trainers providing instruction came to us from Troy High School to share their expertise with CyberPatriot and cyber defense content. The trainers ranged from 8th grade to 12th grade with specialties in operating systems such as Windows, Windows Server, and Linux.
Students that attended the Cyber Defense Camp will be prepared for the upcoming CyberPatriot competition beginning in the fall. The training covered ethical behavior, integrity, cyber wellness, and cybersecurity best practices. Students will continue this training throughout the school year when they participate in training and competition events at Garden Grove Center.
Special thanks to Allen Stubblefield, CS Coordinator from Troy High School, and the Garden Grove Center staff for making this a memorable event. We look forward to continuing to provide cybersecurity training to the community.
