Collegiate Social Engineering (SE) Competition
Temple University and Layer 8 Conference are partnering up again to host the 2nd Collegiate Social Engineering (SE) Competition and Training Event (completely online) from Oct 22 to 24, 2021! Undergraduate student teams from ALL fields (not limited to STEM students) are invited to participate as SE impacts everyone. Students are encouraged to assemble a team and participate. International undergraduate student teams can also compete. Applications are being accepted through June 14.
Please note that this is NOT a technical competition like the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition, etc. Given that the human factor is often leveraged in cyberattacks, and that SE is often used to conduct reconnaissance before an attack (and even to maintain a cyberattack), this event emphasizes the human element in the cyberattack/security equation.
