Cyber Security is one of the fastest growing fields in computer science and networking. The Bev Facey Cyber Security club was founded in March of 2017. We entered 2 teams in the Canadian Cyber Defense Challenge that May with very little information of what that would involve. A few weeks later, we found ourselves ranked 6th and 15th in a national competition. With strengths from our computer science and compworks programs, as well as students who are simply interested in problem solving, we have continued this success.
One of our teams was recently invited to the Canadian National competition in New Brunswick based on our strong performance in the CyberPatriot competition. Our second team was only 2 points behind. The club meets regularly to practice and see guest speakers. Students will also have the option to enter competitions.
Facey Cyber Security club is involved in two major competitions: Canadian Cyber Defense Challenge (CCDC) and Cyber Titan (Canadian Division of Cyber Patriot). Teams are drawn from the club based on desire to compete, skill level, and experience. Both competitions are accessed virtually from the school.
