Georgia Cyber Information Warfare Internship

Georgia Cyber Information Warfare Internship:

A collaboration between Georgia Cyber Center and AU Intelligence and Security Studies



The Georgia Cyber Information Warfare Internship program supports the partnership between security studies and cyberspace operations in the area of information warfare. Interns will collaborate on research, supported by technical experts and resources, focused on human centric aspects of information warfare (such as social media networks, propaganda, decision-making behaviors, and attack trend analysis).

Research in these areas will support the understanding of United States Military’s use, tactics and gaps in information warfare contributing to intelligence and policy analysis goals. The unique ecosystem at the Georgia Cyber Center provides an opportunity for interns to utilize highly technical resources and research techniques; additionally, there is opportunity for joint efforts with DoD partners, State law enforcement and industry partners working in the domain. This technology driven research will provide invaluable insight for the students, the academic institution and broader national security interests alike.

Internship Requirements

The work performed during the internship will align and count towards the students’ Capstone requirement. Interns will be expected to provide a detailed research project by the end of the internship. Interns will report twofold: for duties and research responsibilities report to the Cyber DevOps Engineer, Nicole Cliff; for capstone and academic requirements of the internship report to program director, Dr. Craig Albert.

The typical term for interns is 1-2 semesters, depending on research project and need. Students are expected to dedicate 10-20 hours per week to their project. Students that can report in-person are preferred, but for exceptional students, remote-working can be arranged.
