Cyber Security Club

Please join our Cyber Security at Salt Lake Community College. The club will meets every Thursday at 1PM in SI 91, and we discuss security tools, troubleshooting, and a range of other pertinent topics. We use a hands-on approach to learn the latest in security tools and analysis. The club utilizes cloud-based labs from the NICE Challenge Project | CAE Community Portal in California State University, San Bernardino as well as our own NETLABS equipment.

The club is also actively involved in Cyber Competitions throughout the academic year. These competitions are offered by various colleges and government agencies and will boost your resume if you participate, though the level at which you participate will not be mandatory. You can join and only participate in what you have time to do, you do not need to attend the meetings to participate. All our labs will be accessible over the Internet as well so you can do them at home on your own time.

In order to officially join the club, follow this link to the club homepage chapter If you are interested or have further questions, please contact Rod Buhler at rod.buhler@slcc.edu
