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! Visit cyber.csusb.edu for information on scholarships, academic programs.

CISA Signed into Law

On the 16th of November 2018, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2018 was signed into law, thereby creating a new agency with the express goal of providing and improving US cybersecurity.

Learn more about CISA at their website!


InfoSec Meetings

Club meetings are every other week and are usually informational. We also get some really cool guest speakers for you all! We have more projects than ever before, so check out the projects and get involved! If you're interested in our events, check our calendar to view upcoming events. Also check out our Open House event, it's one of the biggest annual events that we host!

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.
