Twenty-seven cybersecurity students from four SMCs — University of North Georgia, The Citadel, Norwich, and Texas A&M — are spending the week at the Norwich campus in Northfield, Vermont, for deep immersion in cybersecurity topics. The week-long event includes lectures and exercises on deepfakes, info ops, intelligence, and other cybersecurity issues.

Norwich is partnering with the Citadel and the University of North Georgia for this event, with instructors joining those two institutions and taking part in a similar program last week at the Citadel.

“This first-of-its-kind event was designed by scholars from the SMC Cyber ​​Institutes, and it exemplifies the power of such collaboration,” said Michael Battig, Ph.D., director of the School of Cybersecurity, data science and computer science.
