Cyber @ UCI

We do all things Cybersecurity

The Club

What about us?

Cyber @ UCI was created from a desire to have more cybersecurity exposure and learning at UCI. Despite being a rapidly growing, and extremely important field, cybersecurity is often only relegated to a couple upper division classes. That just isn't right! At its core, being 'good' at cybersecurity necessitates being plugged into the security community, and keeping up to date with all the latest developments. Cyber @ UCI offers such a place, bringing people from all levels of experience together with one common interest: cybersecurity. Yet more than just a common interest, we have several branches of involvement that we offer...


We highlight in-house talent, discuss major news events, or tackle common security topics in our weekly workshops. Stay tuned on Discord for upcoming workshops and topics.


CCDC (Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition) is a staple for any aspiring cybersecurity expert. As a team, we compete against other universities in real time to defend and maintain a live network.


Want more hands on? Check back soon for news on our Capture The Flag (CTF) competition, where teams of students compete to solve the security challenges and win the grand prize!


Interested in Cybersecurity? We'd love to have you!

People are always curious about what it takes to get into Cybersecurity, and the answer to that question is... just jump in! Our club is structured in a way to encourage beginners to jump in and engage with our workshops, in house competitions, and also our competition teams.

So how does one 'jump in?'
