CyberCamp would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. Ww would like to take the time to thank the corporate and individual sponsors who have made this year’s camp possible. Without these sponsors, this opportunity would not be available to the over 100 high school students we searved with this year’s camp.

CyberCamp 2015 Sponsors

With CyberCamp 2015 starting in just four days, we want to put aside our task list and take the time to thank the corporate and individual sponsors who have made this year’s camp possible. Without these sponsors, this opportunity would not be available to the over 60 high school students that are currently looking forward to next week’s camp. 

CyberCamp 2014 Recap

We wrapped up CyberCamp 2014 last week at Daytona State College. We were, once again, graciously hosted by the Advanced Cyberforensics Education (ACE) program, under a grant from the National Science Foundation.


This year, 42 high-school students participated in a four day day intensive security training camp. The first three days included classes, labs and challenges designed to challenge students at all levels. The fourth day consisted of a 4 hour team challenge designed to test the students’ abilities to secure machines under typical business stresses.


This year we also added a class, lab and challenge on vulnerability assessment. Vulnerability assessment is a skill that very few students get exposure to until they enter the workforce. Our CyberCamp students not only received general training on Vulnerability assessment, but also got to work hands-on in their own labs to remediate the vulnerabilites vulnerabilities they discovered.


At the completion of the camp, we awarded prizes valued well over $25k this year, including 9 Cisco Video Training packages, courtesy of IT University Online.

FCA Supports the Safe and Secure Online Program

On October 29th, FCA VP Lee Mangold traveled to Moss Park Elementary (along with the CF-ISSA President, James McQuiggan) to talk to five 5th grade classes (91 students) about being safe online and how to prevent and report cyber bullying.

The (ISC)2 Safe and Secure Online program was established to bring secure computing practices to our schools, teachers and parents. The SSO program teaches students about the basics of online privacy, secure computing, and how to handle cyber bullying. (isc)2 members are invited to attent nationwide SSO training events to learn how to teach the SSO materials students, teachers, parents, and the elderly.

From the SSO Site: “(ISC)² members wanted a way to educate the most vulnerable members of society – children. The Safe and Secure Online (SSO) program was introduced in 2006 in conjunction with Childnet International, and brings (ISC)²’s information security expert members into classrooms to help children ages 7-14 learn how to protect themselves online and become responsible digital citizens.”

FSA proudly supports (ISC)2 in this noble cause.

CyberCamp 2013 Recap

In 2013 we held a cyber security summer camp at Daytona State College Advanced Cyberforensics Education Consortium, funded by the National Science Foundation, for high school students. The 3-day camp was offered to students at no cost. We are beginning the planning for CyberCamp 2014, and we are looking for volunteers to teach, plan, or to help out in other ways. We are also looking for prize sponsors; in 2013 we were fortunate enough to receive over $2000 in prizes for our students. If you would like more information, please contact us!
