The BYU Cyber Security Students Academic Association (ITSec) is an official student club that provides a relaxed and fun way for cybersecurity enthusiasts to learn and socialize. The club is open to all years; experience is not a concern.  More information about upcoming events can be found at

ITSec holds a bi-weekly meeting where a variety of expert guest speakers cover every and any security-related topic.  ITSec also organizes and hosts regular training sessions and competitive events such as the Annual ITSec Capture the Flag (CTF) contest.  This contest is a great chance for students from all over campus to test their skills against each other as they complete a variety of cyber-challenges.  An on-going all year CTF is also provided with league-table like standings, although this is closed-access to paid club members.

ITSec Conference
