September Minutes

The meeting began at 7pm. Josh S. started with introductions and a brief overview of OWASP. He also covered some of the top OWASP projects. Josh Pauli began his presentation at approximately 7:20pm. He began with an introduction of Dakota State University and its Information Security degrees. He covered the courses offered, the technology utilized in each course and if there are any certification equivalents. He also provided information about several 'out-of-class' activities. One of the major topics covered was the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition. "CCDC is a three day event and the first competition that specifically focuses on the operational aspect of managing and protecting an existing “commercial” network infrastructure." He also covered Defcon, which is "one of the oldest continuous running hacker conventions around, and also one of the largest." DSU has a local chapter, dc605. DSU is open for any collaboration, involvement with their clubs/organizations, projects, etc so feel free to contact them anytime.
