    Who We Are

    The Cyber Security Club is student run club with the goal of providing outside of class activities relevant to the industry. Attendees will leave with valuable experience proven to be useful during interviews and jobs. The club is open to everybody at IUP no matter what experience level or major you are. Our goal is to expand our knowledge of cybersecurity and information security through hands-on experience and direct interaction with professionals in the field.

    IUP student participants in the 2018 CAE Regional Resource Center NE Cyber Competition.

    Four members from the club competed in the 2018 CNY Hackathon and placed third. This opportunity provided hands-on experience in combating real-life cyber threats. No prior experience is required to participate in a hackathon—you learn as you compete. More info on this competition can be found in this news post about the Hackathon. Stop by our next meeting to learn more about future activities.
