MISI Cyber Leadership Academy at DreamPort

Do You Have What it Takes?

Do you aspire to be a leader in cyber? Do you want to understand how cyber strategies and policies are developed? Do you want a deeper understanding of why cyber decisions are what they are? Are you interested in learning a framework for thinking through impact and risk of technology decisions?

MISI is hosting at DreamPort the inaugural offering of the Cyber Leadership Academy this summer! If you are a student living in the Columbia, MD area (or don't mind driving there) and have a love of (more like an obsession with) technology and innovation, this might just be your dream internship!

The Academy is looking for inquisitive, hard-charging students. We seek qualified rising High School Juniors, Seniors, and recently graduated Seniors (Class of 2020) to come out to DreamPort and explore what it might be like to lead an organization through a challenging cyber landscape.

Academy participants will engage in conversations with cyber leaders from government, industry, and academia complemented by case studies exploring strategy, authorities, policies, ethics, risk management, business and national interests.

There will be 2 sessions:
Session 1: June 22 - July 3, 2020
Session 2: August 10 - August 21, 2020
