DLG offers a flexible, part time internship designed to accelerate the technical and professional development of highly motivated 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students seeking challenging but rewarding project-based experiences early in their academic career. DLG projects are designed to give students a 2 to 3 year jump start on their peers to secure future opportunities.
DLG partnered with a university and IT company to create a Cybersecurity Camp which taught an Intro to Cybersecurity Fundamentals in our 3D virtual cybersecurity campus as an NSA-funded pilot. We continue to periodically offer this no-cost opportunity to veterans interested in exploring cybersecurity either as a potential future career or to better understanding its growing importance in their jobs or home IT network.
