This allows members of all backgrounds and skill levels to jump in and learn more about the topic with us! And sometimes there’s cookies. We also plan on participating in a virtual competition later in the semester where we can put our new knowledge and skills to the test with exciting hacking simulations (ethical hacking of course)
