There are plenty of ways to get involved with UFSIT — our weekly meetings
are a great place to learn about new topics, which you can put to use when
playing capture the flag over the weekends, or even during larger national
competitions like CCDC.
UFSIT hosts weekly club meetings every Thursday from 5:30–6:30 PM in
CSE 231. These meetings often include presentations from club members and
industry professionals on a variety of security topics. If you’re looking to get
started in cybersecurity, our meetings are a great way to get exposed to and
learn about the numerous disciplines in the cybersecurity field.
Capture the flag
Our club members regularly compete in online capture the flag (CTF) events
— under the team name Kernel Sanders — where participants compete
against other teams to solve challenges related to reverse engineering, binary
exploitation, web security, and more. These events are a great way to learn and
sharpen your skills.
For more serious competition, UFSIT participates in national events such as the
Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC) and the Collegiate Penetration
Testing Competition (CPTC). We are always looking for new members to add value
to our teams.
There are no club dues nor applications required to join UFSIT — however
you’d like to participate, we are happy to have you. It’s strongly encouraged that
you join our Discord server where you can stay up to date on club events,
socialize, and collaborate with other club members.
