Student Development Badge

Foundations of Cyber Operations

The Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy in partnership with MITRE Corp is happy to announce the launch of an interactive experiential learning program. The Foundations of Cyber Operations – Student Development Badge is an innovative and educational initiative designed to provide students with the tools they need to function in a highly digitized world. This badge will focus on the different types of cyber operations and their operators, as well as how cyber operations impacts their lives.

Student Development Badges are a form of micro-credential fully supported by the university and offers students an effective way to develop core competencies in areas that will have a significant impact on their everyday life.

This Badge will be delivered via four modules, each focusing on a core component of Cyber Operations while the fifth module will conclude the program with an fully immersive “capture the flag” simulation. Students must be available on the following dates and times to participate:
