The student led Cyber Security Club is associated with the university Office of Student Development. While new on campus it is gaining momentum. The purpose of this Organization is to further member’s knowledge of popular cyber security concepts and help foster a constructive environment on Marquette’s campus for internet safety. This will include events both within the club, for the club, and events hosted by the club for members outside of the club. This would be most feasible with ten to thirty active members, but still possible with more or less. The inner club events may include hackathons (programming and ideation competitions), capture the flag (server brute forcing competitions), and general discussion about, but not limited to, any news or concepts relevant to the field of, or fields related to, cyber security. The outreach events may include bringing in speakers from the field and hosting seminars on general computer safety.
The faculty contact and mentor for this organization is Assistant Professor Debbie Perouli.
