OSE Club Fair (Welcome Back Carnival)
On September 24, 2019, CSUSB’s Office of Student Engagement (OSE) conducted its annual Fall Club Fair, one of many events associated with the campus welcoming of new students into the 2019-2020 academic year. One hundred thirty student clubs were on display with interactive games and activities, inviting over 3000 participating students to be a part of their organizations. The Cyber Intelligence and Security Organization (CISO)’s outreach group, Cyber Squad, was present to promote cybersecurity awareness and student opportunities in the Jack H. Brown College (JHBC) Cybersecurity academic and scholarship programs.
10 CISO student volunteers and Cybersecurity Center staff set up a clever giant Jenga game in which participants (in the traditional game manner) pulled a block that gave them different tasks, which resulted in a gain or loss of points. At the end of the game, each point earned participants a raffle ticket for free drones and other prizes redeemable at the Cybersecurity Center’s annual Open House event drawing held later in October. What made this game particularly interesting was the inclusion of not only silly and goofy physical tasks, but also cybersecurity oriented exercises like developing a secure password and understanding online safety tips.
The JHBC Cybersecurity Center also supported the presentation and advertisement of the CSUSB Women in Cybersecurity chapter and the Coyote Karate Academy.
