Don’t be WilmU’s best kept secret!
You’ve heard people say, “It’s not what you know but who you know.” the truth is, “It is what you know…and who knows you know it!” Here are some ways our Information Assurance students can make sure folks know just how brilliant they are:
CNS and MSIST/IA students need to compete in Cyber Quests to be eligible for the U.S. Cyber Challenge. Registration has opened and there are just a few weeks left until the competition completes. Dr. Hufe is the WilmU representative for CyberQuests and the US Cyber Challenge. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Additionally, the National Cyber League has begun a spring season and DJ Jackson (email@example.com) is leading the NCL charge for WilmU students. NCL develops Security+ and ECH type skills. For more information, check out: http://www.nationalcyberleague.org/index.shtml
Cyber Wildcats is the College of Technology’s cybersecurity competition club. You don’t have to be an expert to join–the ‘Cats know that everybody has to start somewhere! Eric Arnoth (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the faculty advisor should you have any questions. You can become a member at no cost or obligation by going here: http://cyberwildcats.net/ctf
Dover Cyber Club
For students that are not into competing, the Dover Cyber Club is an excellent alternative. Their focus is project-based. Ed Wiley (email@example.com) is the faculty advisor.
Take charge of your career and get involved outside of the classroom! One of the best ways to get a job after you graduate is to meet people in the industry before you graduate. Take advantage of these great networking and personal development opportunities, and have a whole lot of fun doing it!
