CATS - Shanklin and Hampton

DLC 1B70

Sandia Labs CyberDefenders Program

Computer security is of critical importance, not only to Sandia National Laboratories but also to industry in general. The Cyber Defender Program gives computer science students practical experience directed toward understanding computer systems, network operations, and information protection. The mentors and staff of the CCD program have developed a unique environment that challenges students with cutting edge research projects, while supplying multiple levels of new skills for students with varied computer backgrounds. It also provides students with a legitimate venue for performing experiments on attacking and defending computer systems with proper guidance and protective measures in place. There will be an overview of the program and a couple of the student projects will be highlighted. Resumes for Sandia and the CyberDefenders Program, both internships and salaried positions, will be accepted at the talk.

The Colorado Advanced Technology Series wants to introduce students at the University of Colorado to the technology leaders of local and national industries and help the leaders of those companies explain what their companies do and why they are great places to work. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming talks, subscribe to our CATS Mailing List.

The main event of CATS is a series of technical talks in the middle of each semester. In each seminar, a technical or business leader from a local or national company describes new or existing technical developments, the motivation for developing that technology and the corporate environment. Each seminar is followed by refreshments and a chance for students and industry representatives to mingle and talk. See CATS Frequently Asked Questions for further information.
