This a place for students prepare for careers in the cyber security community in a competitive environment”. “The teaching here is excellent,” Thomas A.

The Cyber Defense Club currently has twenty-eight members and is growing. “The group positively impacts GSU by creating a place where students can develop critical skills and gain practical experience, which is necessary for today’s cyber security workforce,” says Grgurich. “The CDC encourages teamwork and provides its members the opportunity to network with Information Technology and Computer Science professionals”. The Club itself meets once or twice a week depending on club members’ schedules.

In terms of Events, the club competed at the CYBERSEED 2017 Social Engineering competition at the University of Connecticut on October 19th and 20th. “Five members of the CDC recently attended the SASEHackathon and Career Fair in Schaumberg, Illinois. Additional members participated in the SASE Career Fair,” Grgurich reports. She also mentioned the club is “also preparing for the 2018 Midwest Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (MWCCDC) at Moraine Valley Community College in February 2018”
