The Security Dawgs Club is a group of students preparing for the Annual Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition. The CCDC competition is an excellent opportunity to bring positive exposure to SIUC, our School, and its programs. It is an event that will allow employers, alumni, and friends an opportunity to support an exciting event and also the opportunity to help net resources that can have a long-term impact on enhancing our information security training. We are looking for people and organizations to be involved as sponsors, judges, exercise designers, and general support staff. If you would like to be involved and/or know of contacts within your organization that could help, please contact us.
