About Us

Who are we?

We’re a group of students, alumni, and security professionals brought together by a common interest in Cyber Security and seeking to expand our collective knowledge.

And we’ve got an interesting sense of humor

What do we do?

We primarily train for the CCDC, but we also participate in CTF competitions, work on personal projects, etc.

What is the CCDC?

The Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC) is a condensed simulation of life in corporate IT. Students (Blue Team) are expected to complete business tasks (injects) from upper management while maintaining the network and defending it from active attack by the Red Team (Group of professionals and security researchers).

What are CTF competitions?

Capture the Flag competitions are usually a Jeopardy-style set of computer security challenges in various categories. Teams work to solve each challenge and earn the most points by capturing the most flags. Common categories are Web (for web-based exploits), Forensics (Things like steganography), and Binary (for exploiting compiled binaries).

Sounds cool. I want to join!

If you want to get involved, come to one of our meetings and talk to us. We usually meet on Friday’s during the school year. To find out the time and place of the next meeting and get updates on the team, sign up for our mailing list:
