Dubai Electronic Security Centre, DESC, is conducting its annual ‘Cyberspace Leaders’ summer camp. Now in its third edition, the camp is geared toward students aged 14 to 18, to establish a community highly aware of the risks of cyber attacks and maintaining sustained vigilance.
The centre has set an educational programme that includes multiple sessions and workshops during the camp’s one-week run, starting 14th July, held at the Etisalat Academy in Dubai. The summer programme is tailored to scale up community awareness as well as to introduce and hone various digital skillsets. Students will be initiated into best practices of cybersecurity and trained in safe use of ethical hacking.
“One of our primary objectives is to cultivate a deeper understanding of cybersecurity and to create a society capable of effectively defending itself against cyber attacks. We want to build a generation equipped with the necessary technical skills and well versed in best security practices. Our workshops are designed to educate, train and prepare the younger generation for a digitally augmented future,” said Hassan Abdullah, Director of Support Services at DESC.
