    “Recent events have shown us how vital cyber is for our everyday life. We're pleased to offer this introduction to cybercrime investigation, as a way of educating local students on cybersecurity threats and to encourage them to consider a future in the cyber profession.” said Dr. Michael Jenkins, Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, Criminal Justice, & Criminology.

    The inaugural Cybersecurity investigation Camp will take place from July 13 through July 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
