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 http://www.facebook.com/BYUITSec.
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 hosts an annual, one-day, student run cybersecurity conference. In this conference, select students are the speakers. They give a presentation and/or workshop on a topic of their choosing to better inform the attendees. This conference provides a great opportunity to encourage students to learn more about security and to have fun while doing so.
