Featured Summit Events
The CAHSI Hackathon is an interactive learning event that distills the essence of many aspects of professional computer security work into a “Capture the Flag” exercise. Students work in teams to solve challenges that test their cybersecurity skills. The event encourages students at all skill levels to participate, promotes teamwork, encourages friendly competition with real-time feedback, and motivates students to learn more on how to protect assets controlled by software.
CAHSI CYBERSECURITY WORKSHOPS
CAHSI Cybersecurity workshop is a mandatory session that serves as preparation prior to the Hackathon. Students learn about the tools, approaches, and methods that adversaries use to exploit vulnerabilities.

The sponsor(s) will have an opportunity to collaborate with CAHSI and coach the students during the session.
