Students interested in cybersecurity should apply for an internship with OmniSOC.
OmniSOC is a new shared cybersecurity operations center for higher education. Founded by Northwestern University, Purdue University, Rutgers University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Indiana University, this pioneering initiative strives to help higher education institutions reduce the time from first awareness of a cybersecurity threat anywhere to mitigation everywhere for members.
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is planning to send three students to participate in the program. Travel, housing, and a stipend will be provided.
• Students will go through rotations with one of the three groups of the OmniSOC, which include platform engineering, security engineering, and service desk
• Group leaders will provide their students with an in-depth look at what daily work looks like
• Students will have the opportunity to work with professional FTE staff and receive mentorship on security topics related to SOC operations
• In addition to shadowing, OmniSOC will provide workshops where students are provided with a deep-dive talk from a staff member regarding a specific subject (machine learning, threat intel integration, etc.)
• Projects for hands on practice
• Must be heading into their junior year (sophomore in good standing)
• Submit an essay (2-3 paragraphs) describing your career goals (What do you want to do? What would your dream job look like after graduation?)
• Be able to travel to and from Bloomington (travel provided)
• Be able to work on projects for at least 4 weeks in the summer
The application deadline has been extended and the internship will begin in June.
