RPISEC introduces INTROSEC

RPISEC is proud to introduce a new branch of our organization: INTROSEC.

RPISEC has become an incredibly successful club in recent years. We've created two independent open source classes, qualified two teams to CSAW, won tens of thousands of dollars at CTFs, and have grown our core membership so much that we barely fit in our room at Amos Eaton.

We're incredibly proud of our progress and growth. However, one of our biggest weaknesses has always been introducing new members into the world of computer security. Our weekly talks have either been to fast and complicated for our newer members, or too dull for our core members. Pandering to these two groups at the same time has consistently turned away many people who have otherwise would have been great additions to the club. This is what INTROSEC is meant to fix.

The group is going to be lead by two sophomore members of RPISEC, Jazmyn Borman and Milo Trujillo. They've already set up a ton stuff, including  talks, challenges, and a mini CTF that we will eventually be hosting. We're incredibly proud and impressed with how much work they've both put into this and we expect great things to come out of it.

First meeting will be in Sage 2715 this Tuesday, 5pm-7pm.
