The University of the Virgin Islands CECOR program provides  opportunities for students from middle school to high school, undergraduates, graduates and professionals to attend cybersecurity camps, workshops and events with the support of partner institutions.


Cybersecurity Workshop  on St. Thomas  ( free for AP Computer Science grade  to graduate level computer science, applied math. computer engineering, Alumni  Information Technology, Teachers, Faculty and Alumni)
June 17 -June 28, 2019
9:00am to noon
 
Apply by: June 5th, 2019

Location: St. Thomas Campus

The recent news of micro-architecture level security vulnerabilities and exploits like Spectre and Meltdown has highlighted the need to consider the full computer system stack when implementing performance or security concepts.
In this project-based learning activity, we will cover:
(i) application level security concepts such as control flow hijacking, return-oriented programming vulnerabilities, code injection attacks,
(ii) conventional processor organization and its inherent vulnerabilities, and finally
(iii) secure applications and processor design principles.
Important: 
 The University of the Virgin Islands lost several computer labs during Irma and Maria. If you own a laptop, please bring it so you will not have to share computers. 
This program is funded with the support Boston University Adaptive and Secure Computing System Laboratory and  a grant from the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Minority Serving Partnership Initiative, Norforlk State University,  Lawrence Livermore National Lab and Sandia National Laboratories.
