Information Security Club

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.

Meetings

We generally have a formal meeting every other Monday during this Fall Quarter from 3pm - 4pm. 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.

For the Fall 2015 quarter:

Day Time
Mon ~10am - 8pm
Tue ~10am - 8pm
Wed ~10am - 8pm

October Cybersecurity Month

In 2009, President Obama recognized the need to increase education and dialogue about cybersecurity, as called for in the Cyberspace Policy Review. As part of this policy review, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was asked to create an ongoing cybersecurity awareness campaign — Stop.Think.Connect.

The Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign is a national public awareness effort to guide the nation to a higher level of Internet safety by challenging the American public to be more vigilant about practicing safe online habits. Through partnerships at the federal, state and local level, as well as with private sector, academic institutions, and nonprofit organizations, the Campaign is reaching thousands of Americans, providing tips on how they can protect themselves, their families and the nation from growing cyber threats.

During the month of October, the InfoSec Club will engage in several weekly activities to bring cyber awareness to the campus community. Please join us in this effort by taking part in the following activities:

  • Take a photo of yourself making an "I Pledge..." statement as a commitment to cyber hygiene. Post it on your social media account (#IPledge, #CyberAware, #CyberHygiene)
  • Visit our on-campus booth any Wednesday and participate in the scheduled activities
