Who We Are

The Cyber Security Club is a 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.

2019 CAE Hackathon Participants

Our club competed in the 2019 CAE-NE Hackathon and placed first. 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.

Recently, the Club members organized the first IUP Hackathon event on November 7, 2020. That competition was opened to IUP students and members of the community. For details on that event, please visit its page.

How to Join the Club

You can get added to the Cyber Security Club email list by emailing our secretary, Meghan Schilpp, at hprbc@iup.edu, and then keep up to date with all of the club's current and future activities.
