Cyber Tigers Club

The Cyber Tigers of St. Philips College are a group of students who are interested in all things technology. The Cyber Tigers compliment their studies of networking, Microsoft applications, Linux, and security to form a unique club that helps channel school work into real work scenarios and experiences. The Cyber Tigers take part in IT conferences, inter-collegiate competitions and help spread the word about the wonderful opportunities available in IT through STEM events.

Panoply, a Network Security Competition, is a network assessment and network defense competition combined into a single event. Teams of students compete for control of common resources and the critical services on those resources. Once a team takes possession of a resource, they must secure that resource against attacks from other teams and maintain the critical services running on the resource. Teams accumulate points for controlling and operating critical services such as SMTP, DNS, HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, and so on.
