Get hands-on cybersecurity experience
Each summer, OmniSOC hosts an internship program that offers students from our founding member academic institutions (Indiana University, Purdue University, University of Nebraska, Northwestern University, and Rutgers University) 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
- Interact directly with security operations professionals and other 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. Interns willl also 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 basic SOC operations. Discussions and explorations will include issues related to cybersecurity activities within a professional SOC environment.
