4 Week Summer Workshops

Purpose: For CAE faculty to adopt cybersecurity learning modules developed by UC professors. Faculty will receive all teaching materials, answers to the assignments, and hands-on labs. The two workshops will be hosted at the same time in August. You are welcome to sign up for one or both of them. Seats are limited for the first 20 applicants.

Format: All teaching materials will be available for faculty to learn online asynchronously. A Canvas course will be available for registered faculty one week before the workshop starts. Online synchronous sessions will be organized for 2-4 hours each Monday to go over the course contents, assignments, and exams. 

Enterprise Network Forensics (August 1 – August 26, 2022) The workshop is to introduce 10 learning modules under the topic of network forensics to CAE faculty. These modules focus on computer forensic software tools and techniques that are used to obtain, analyze, and report digital forensic evidence. The lecture videos, assignments, and forum discussion topics are already developed for CAE faculty to adopt. 

Data-Driven Cybersecurity (August 1 – August 26, 2022) The workshop is to teach CAE faculty to adopt a newly developed course in data-driven cybersecurity which intends to convert cybersecurity challenges into data science challenges. The learning modules include surveying network data types, writing scripts to dissect network packets and automate threat identification process, applying data science techniques to visualize, analyze, and predict threat behaviors. 

In addition, the School of IT will provide scholarships for UC students and students from other CAEs in the nation to take a Data Driven Cybersecurity Graduate Certificate. The certificate consists of four 7000-level IT courses, listed on the Graduate Certificate child page.

1 Week Teaching Workshop

Purpose: For CAE faculty to study a hybrid cybersecurity course by going through all the lectures, assignments, and projects to obtain a course completion grade. 

Format: A dedicated week will be for synchronous sessions at UC campus for faculty to take lectures and work on assignments with UC instructors. All teaching materials will be available for faculty to learn online asynchronously. 

Synchronous sessions will beheld at:

  • 10:00am to 1:30pm
  • 2:30pm to 6:00pm

Principles of Cybersecurity (July 11th - July 15th, 2022)  Students will be exposed to multiple cybersecurity technologies, processes, and procedures. The learning modules introduce students to the topics in network protocols, cryptography, penetration testing, laws and policies, scripting, IDS, access control, and IoT security.Replace with your text

Automated Approach to Cybersecurity (July 18th - July 22nd, 2022)  This course explores different types of network data from text-based log files to complex and proprietary binaries. Students will have hands-on practice using scripting languages and software tools to visualize and process network data and identify threats and malicious activities on networks.
