Comments from CyberCAM-2014:

“It was fun!”    “Well Structured”     “Great Learning Experience”

Where was CyberCAM-2014?

Algonquin College, Rm T115

That’s Building “T”, Room 115.  At South East end of the campus.

Free Parking in lots 8 and 9.  8 is closest.  Everywhere else, you will get a ticket.  Yes, even on Saturdays.  🙁

What was CyberCAM-2014?

Come join your fellow ISSA members and their colleagues for an afternoon of fun and education. You will be pointed at a target of networks and computers that emulate a realistic corporate environment. The challenge is to break through the cyber defenses and disrupt the company, or capture their secrets. You’ll learn what the bad guys are up to – and how to defend against them, to keep Hacking Away.

Why come?

  • Because it’s Fun and Educational.
  • You can Meet Other IT Pros.
  • Win Prizes and augment your Resume.
  • Earn CPE’s!

This is an entry-level and learning event.

No hacking experience required. If you are already a super-ninja hacker dude/dudette, you will not find this an adequate challenge. But you might want to come and mentor the others.

*Back by popular demand* again this year we will have short lectureshand-outsdemos, and plenty of hints to help work through the events.

And, it’s a team event.

IT Security managers, auditors, consultants can come and learn about the technical side of hacking. While sys-admins, network-admins, and help desk agents can learn a lot from the Security professionals who attend. You may get to teach the managers a few technical tricks, while they help you understand the big picture.

Open Events

Open Events are open to anyone who wants to improve their IT Security skills, meet others, and have fun!  We get great feedback from sys admins, network admins, web programmers, and IT-Sec consultants and practitioners - of all skill levels.


Corporate/Department Events are for groups who want to have a fun and challenging team-building event.  There's no better, faster, or more effective way to build IT Security skills, than to put the team into a competitive environment.  We can do this on- or off-site.  Great pricing if we combine your team event with others.

Student Events

Student Events started at Algonquin College in June 2012.  Since then, we've done similar events at McGill University for Electrical, Computer and Software engineering students, Carleton U "Learn to Win" program, and La Cité Collégiale.  If you are interested in having an event at your school then let us know.

Groups & Associations

Group and Association Events can be an exciting and engaging addition to your calendar.  A hands-on, fun-filled and challenging activity that your members will really look forward to.  They'll improve their IT Security skills, and earn CPE and other professional credits.
