The Desert Research Institute (DRI) Cybersecurity Bootcamp, funded by the NV Space Grant Consortium, provides workforce development to diverse Nevada students, covering current cyber-threats, techniques attackers use, as well as how to counter those threats. Upon completion of the bootcamp, participants are equipped with the knowledge on how to protect these types of devices and their underlying infrastructure, and how to “translate” this knowledge to their research group in actionable steps.
