Champlain Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity Academy


July 12-25, 2020

Champlain College | Burlington, Vermont



It is our hope that by the time our Summer Academies take place, Champlain will resume normal operations. Of course, the safety of our visitors, current students, staff and faculty is our highest priority and first responsibility, and we will continue to take guidance from local, state, and federal health authorities regarding any need to extend the closure of our campus. If you are interested in attending the Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity Academy, please register, and we will provide continual status updates. Should we be unable to host the program, your deposit and program fee will be refunded.

What is The DFCS Academy?

The DFCS Academy is a two-week-long, in-depth learning experience, where students who are excited to pursue a career in digital forensics and cybersecurity can learn, meet new friends, and live independently on the beautiful Champlain College campus.

What Do Students Do?

Students will get hands-on learning experience from veterans of the cybersecurity industry, covering a wide breadth of digital forensics and cybersecurity, from investigating digital crimes to constructing and safeguarding networks. DFCS academy students will also get to work together to solve real digital forensics problems faced by law enforcement agencies all over America.

Why Attend?

At the DFCS, students will be able to gain real, practical skills in cybersecurity. They will learn how to defend against cyberattacks, investigate digital crimes, and work both independently and as part of a team. The experience they gain here will prepare them for both college life and their future careers in cybersecurity. Apply soon, as space is limited!
