CypherCon 4 Talk: Building a Cohesive Undergraduate Security Club

Ian Klatzco, 2019

Abstract, Talk Video

Building good teams (either in the "elite" sense or the "healthy culture" sense) is hard. Our university security club had its ups and downs between boring meetings and inaccessibility to newcomers -- we stepped it up this year with on a tighter meeting format, approachable 24-7 internal CTF, and internal documentation. We saw better attendance, more people staying after meetings, and freshmen successfully completing projects with upperclassman mentorship. Other exciting developments include reusable published meetings and writing our own fuzzers.
