AICS Student Quote

Analysis & Investigation through Cyber-Based Scenarios (AICS) is a week-long residential program with a national intelligence focus in the context of cyber, consisting of discussion sessions using a scenario-based approach to security issues, hands-on computer science labs, a cryptographic component, film sessions, and a final challenge, each of which integrates the history, ethical issues, applications, and theory behind the development of analysis and synthesis of information in the context of threat assessment to critical systems.

The aim of AICS is for participating high school juniors to have a broader exposure to applications of liberal arts, mathematics, and science, and thus to be more likely to choose careers in which a broad cyber background is required. Moreover, teachers who participate will gain a deeper appreciation for the mathematics/science or liberal arts they teach as well as how analysis is done in both technical and non-technical fields impacted by cybersecurity.
