How We Do It

We accomplish these goals by training in simulated environments that allow us to practice successfully securing computer systems utilizing real world strategies and competing in cybersecurity capture the flag competitions. While we teach offensive techniques these are not meant to be applied maliciously or without permission, they are taught so that defensive solutions are more comprehensive.

Weekly Meetings

CU Cyber meetings are held Thursdays at 7pm in the Watt Family Innovation Center room 106.

We will cover security topics and tools in these meetings that can be applied to your professional and daily life.

Guest Speakers

Opportunities may arise throughout the year for guests to attend meetings and provide insight on current security issues and events.

Exciting Competitions

There will be several opportunities during the semester for students to travel to security competitions. This will provide students with the experience of competing against peers from other schools.
