SJSU's Information Security Student Club

SJSU InfoSec competed in the UBER CRTC Penetration testing competition, 2017 Western Regional. The participating teams included those from City College of San Francisco, Stanford, Cal Poly Pomona, UC Berkeley, CSU Dominguez Hills, San Jose State University and one other college.

Thanks to Christine Le for her leadership as past InfoSec Club president and for serving as team captain for this competition.

Our long standing friend, colleague and major contributor to SJSU's involvement with US Cyber Challenge, Alex Levinson, was the Mastermind behind this national initiative and arranged for the opportunity for our students to compete. This 2-Day competition took place at the UBER Headquarters in San Francisco.
