Message From Leadership

This week the Cybersecurity Club leadership team met to discuss when to schedule weekly meetings. The group will poll students between now and the beginning of the spring quarter to find the most popular meeting time. We know everyone is busy and the team brainstormed reasons to join the STC Cybersecurity Club. 

First, security is a societal issue. Cybersecurity is an integral part of technology and cybersecurity issues continually affect our lives. Whatever your degree is, you want to consider joining this club.  The club agenda will include a holistic approach to discussing cybersecurity trends that impact us all. Topics will include trends to social engineering, cyber hygiene and data and identity protecting, critical infrastructure…the list goes on. 

Second, the weekly agenda will include “technical” part to help deepen understanding of cybersecurity tools. The club supports technology career pathways through a security lens. Take part in competitions, do capture the flag events, participate in the National Cyber League. Even if you are headed for a management track, getting your hands on the technology shapes who you are as a professional and expands your professional horizons. 

Third, cybersecurity is an emerging field. Come to the cybersecurity club to learn about the different aspects of cybersecurity. As a student in the School of Technology & Computing ask yourself: 

  • What career pathways are available? 
  • Which certifications will advance your career?  
  • How do I expand my network to kick-start my cybersecurity/technology career? 
  • How do I get my first cybersecurity position? 
  • What components of security do I need to do to advance my technology career? 

To join the cybersecurity clubfill out this survey and start working on the answers.

This Week in Tech History March 8th – 14th

March 10, 1876 Alexander Graham Bell makes the first phone call 

According to Alexander Graham Bell, he was able to “talk with electricity” by transmitting a call. His very first call was to his assistant, Mr. Watson, stating, “Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you.” Alexander Bell was interested in sound from an early age. His mother and wife both had severe hearing impairments, and his father and grandfather both worked on elocution and speech.
