Do you like solving problems and helping others? Can you think outside the box? Join the Pikes Peak Community College Cybersecurity Club! Cybersecurity touches everything from medical services to banking and cannot be limited to technical experts. We want students from every major who are interested in safeguarding our information. If you would like more information, fill out the form below.

Club Goals:

  • to foster an environment of learning for cybersecurity concepts and best practices
  • to create a community of like-minded individuals with high ethical standards
  • to represent PPCC in related cybersecurity events

Areas of Emphasis:

#1 Curriculum

Theory is empty without practice. In P2C4, we want everyone to gain the hands-on experience that is needed to reinforce our education. We strive for the practical application of social, ethical, and technical concepts. Club meetings regularly include presentations on the same tools, techniques, and procedures used by current Cybersecurity experts!

#2 Community

As part of P2C4, you will have the opportunity to connect with individuals from all walks of life! Connect with other students, educators, security professionals, military personnel, and government officials as you explore the diversity of cybersecurity. Join us as we network with organizations like the National Cybersecurity Center (NCC), the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), and others!

Competition

Our focus on these two areas encourages us to participate in cybersecurity competitions. Competitions allow P2C4 members to enhance their social and technical skills while representing Pikes Peak Community College at state, regional, and national levels. P2C4 has gone toe-to-toe with universities around the country and continues to prosper on a nationwide platform!
