Get hands-on cybersecurity experience
Each summer, OmniSOC hosts an internship program that offers undergraduates from our founding member academic institutions (Indiana University, University of Nebraska, Northwestern, and Rutgers) an opportunity to gain professional experience at a security operations center (SOC). This program is designed to help interns:
- Become more aware of the many areas of interest within cybersecurity
- Determine where their interests are
- Discover what areas of study they should pursue in the future
- Experience high levels of direct interaction with diverse groups with diverse skill sets
As an intern, explore a variety of real-life cybersecurity applications and gain hands-on experience in cybersecurity foundations. Receive formal and informal shadowing opportunities. This immersive program provides mentoring and guidance by subject matter experts in three components of a security operations center: platform engineering, security engineering, and Tier I service desk operations. Discussions and explorations will include issues related to cybersecurity activities within a professional SOC environment.
