Center for Cyber Education
The Cyber Security Club (CSC) is the founding club at Western Governors University. It will be run by students with faculty advisers. The club will meet at least monthly in an online conference.
- To foster an environment of learning for cybersecurity concepts and best practices;
- To create a community of like-minded individuals with high ethical standards;
- To represent WGU in related cybersecurity events.
Knowledge and Experience
Theory is empty without practice. In CSC, we want everyone to gain the hands-on experience that is needed to reinforce our education. We strive for the practical application of social, ethical, and technical concepts. Club meetings will include presentations on the same tools, techniques, and procedures used by current Cybersecurity experts! Tools for learning currently include Hack the Box and the Nice Challenge Project.
As part of CSC, students have the opportunity to connect with individuals from all walks of life! Connect with other students, educators, security professionals, military personnel, and government officials as you explore the diversity of cybersecurity.
Interested CSC members may be able to participate in both Red Team (offensive) and Blue Team (defensive) competitions during the year.
