Information Security Club

Hello Coyotes! The InfoSec Club at California State University San Bernardino is devoted to the art and science of information security. We are a diverse, welcoming group of students passionate about breaking, hacking, and fixing things. We are open to everyone, and we encourage you to join the club! You can do so by visiting the Sign Up Page. Check back here for updates on projects and events!

SWiCS

We are now introducing a brand new cyber security club at CSUSB called Society of Women in Cyber Security, SWiCS! We will be holding biweekly meetings in the lab beginning Wednesday 2/21 at 6:00 PM. Please join us to promote women in the cyber security industry and learn about our upcoming events and guest speakers!

InfoSec Meetings

We generally have a formal meeting every other Wednesday during this Winter Quarter from 12pm - 1pm. These consist of guest speakers from the cybersecurity industry, hands-on workshops from students, or relevant presentations about cyber topics. Fridays (and sometimes Saturdays) are used for ongoing projects. Check our Events Page for an up-to-date list.

We are always open to suggestions, so if you have an idea for a workshop or guest speaker, please let us know.

Projects

Our university department emphasizes learning outside the classroom. There are many subjects in cybersecurity which simply cannot be learned in a lecture-style classroom, so our lab provides space to build, break, secure, and experiment with technology. These experiences add invaluable skills to your repertoire, and gives you tangible stories to tell in job interviews that demonstrate your problem-solving skills.

As a member of the InfoSec Club, you may jump into any project at any time. For more information on each projects, including those that are just in the idea phase, visit the various menu items under the Projects menu above. Feel free to tell us your ideas as well.

Our Lab

We operate primarily out of Jack Brown room 122 (affectionately known as "the lab"). We do our best to keep it open on a consistent schedule. If you'd like the lab open outside of these hours, contact one of the club officers.
