Cryptology:

How can we keep important and sensitive data safe and secure? Through the application of security technologies that rely on cryptology. These technologies include symmetric encryption and tokenization. We will help students understand encryption and tokenization through fun and simple activities like breaking morse code and cyphers.

Fraud Detection: 

Detecting fraud is sometimes a matter of sensing what doesn’t “fit” in a pattern, as much as it is looking at facts and statistics. We will help students how to collect data to establish patterns and detect potential fraud. Students will listen to different types of music and recognize visual patterns in graphs.

All things digital

Digital convergence is simplifying life with the ongoing transition from the physical to the digital. We will help students understand what technology is, how to use binary code and what is biometrics.
