The University of Maryland Cybersecurity Club is a student run organization based in Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Maryland, College Park. Our main purpose is to develop and encourage cyber security awareness and application by providing students with the tools and education they need to advance their cyber security careers. To accomplish this goal, we organize community outreach programs about security related topics, host tech talks and guest speakers and participate in security related competitions and conventions.
At general body meetings, members of the cybersecurity community come to talk about the latest developments in their fields. In past meetings, this has included hands-on demonstrations including router exploitation as well as physical security exploits such as lock picking. One demonstration we have planned for this semester is firmware extraction from a router using the debug pins. Join our mailing list for the latest meeting updates.
Competition team meetings are led by our VP, Peter Heppenstall, and cover practical applications of security with an emphasis on competitions. Last semester's focus was on reverse engineering and binary exploitation. For more information about the competition team or any upcoming CTF competitions that you are interested in forming a team for, contact Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
