Cybersecurity professionals are getting harder and harder to find. In fact, by 2021, it’s estimated that there will be more than 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs across the globe. We’re RSA Conference, the world’s largest cybersecurity event and the meeting point for cybersecurity’s most accomplished innovators and experts. So, whether you’re a current student or recent 2017 graduate, our annual RSA Conference College Day on April 19, 2018 is the place to explore career options, hear from the best in the field, and network with leading companies looking for young professionals to reinforce their workforce. Register now using promo code 38UCOLLEGEDAY and you’ll receive Full Conference access on Thursday, April 19 to more than 50 sessions and keynotes. Plus, we’ll even save you a seat at our exclusive breakfast and evening reception, where you can meet some of the industry’s top professionals and corporate sponsors, as well as up-and-coming cyber aces like yourself.
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.
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.
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.
