Grand Canyon University's Cyber Center of Excellence (CCE) kicked off the year with an open house on Tuesday in the Technology Building.

The event included several hands-on stations, such as a lock-picking station. Visitors also could participate in the capture-the-flag event, an exercise in which "flags” are secretly hidden in purposefully vulnerable programs or websites.

“It was thrilling to see over 100 people experience the hands-on activities in the CCE. At least one of the high school attendees decided GCU would definitely be their university,”  said the College of Science, Engineering and Technology's Dr. Pam Rowland, Associate Dean of Technology.

Also in attendance were enrollment and admissions counselors, GCU students and other members of the campus community.

Several hands-on activity stations and a capture-the-flag event were part of the open house.

The CCE is where GCU's students have gone for cybersecurity training since the fall of 2017, learning to fight data breaches, identity theft and other cybercrimes.

The center got its start in Building 66 at the University's 27th Avenue complex but relocated in the spring to the Technology Building.

Bible Verse

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God. (John 3:20-21)
