EWU’s Cybersecurity Club took first place in the lower division at the Spokane Mayor’s Cyber Cup on Feb. 9.

The event, which Gonzaga University student Max Dulin organized, is a cybersecurity-focused competition where teams compete to exploit each others systems and defend their own in a game called Capture the Flag.

The Capture the Flag competition was held on Saturday, Feb. 9, on Gonzaga’s campus, and was host to multiple experts from the cybersecurity field.

Dulin, a computer science major, is part of Gonzaga University’s Markers and Developers club which hosted the affair in response to Spokane’s lack of local cybersecurity-focused events.

The cup was open to participants of all skill levels and meant to be a way for attendees to interact and network with professionals in the field as well as get people interested and engaged in cybersecurity.

“It is important to note that this event is not just important to Gonzaga University, it is important to the Spokane community,” said Dulin in an interview with Chiara Morrison of Intirium.

EWU’s Cybersecurity Club Vice President Rodney Thomas helped to coordinate the event, according to an Eastern 24/7 article.

“Security is paramount in the times we live in,” said Thomas to Eastern 24/7. “It’s especially important for computer science students so they can learn to not make things that are vulnerable.”
