Sharing a love of hacking

This student club is making it cool to be nerdy. Just ask them.

“We’re a bunch really nerdy students, and we like to take our learning beyond the classroom," says Daniel Pany, computer science and digital forensics major, president of the Bloomsburg Cyber Defense Club (BCDC).

BCDC focuses on studying hacking and security techniques, working to hone their skills for cyber defense competitions and their future in digital forensics.

“We get to play with a lot of cool toys and do nefarious acts in a controlled environment,” said Kyle Mumper, computer science and digital forensics major and club treasurer. “When I first started here I didn’t know anything,” Mumper said. “I had basic computer knowledge, but I’ve learned a lot in the classroom and even more through the club.”
