Can You Hack It?

Special Event

The SJSU School of Information will be hosting its first hackathon on December 11, 2023, from 1 to 5 p.m. Pacific Time via Zoom. The hackathon is free and open to all San Jose State University students. No experience in hacking is necessary.

Participants will use KC7, an online game, and be fully immersed in the role of a cybersecurity analyst as they work with real analytical tools, such as Azure Data Explorer and Kusto Query Language, to solve cybersecurity challenges. Participants will be competing against each other in small teams to win the competition! Prizes will be available for the top team!
