Cybersecurity

As the number of mobile users, digital applications, and data networks increase, so do the opportunities for exploitation. Network outages, data compromised by hackers, computer viruses, and other incidents affect our lives in ways that range from inconvenient to life-threatening.

The Future Kings cybersecurity program, a collaborative effort with Northern Virginia Community College, is called “White Hat.”  Students uncover and gather information for protecting computers, networks, programs, and data from unintended or unauthorized access, change or destruction.

In addition, students gain experience with the Python and Java programming language.

Students will also be given the opportunity to participate in cybersecurity competitions and earn the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Certification.

Program Goals

  • To motivate students toward careers in cybersecurity.
  • To provide a practical pathway to employment in the cybersecurity field. To provide a competitive advantage for our students to enter college with the skills, experiences, and exposures that colleges find attractive.
  • To have students obtain the specialized Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Certification opening up potential job opportunities.
