The 49th Security Division started in 2009 with six students driven by their passion for security. Since being established, we have grown to around fifty or more members and have many accomplishments behind us... With plenty more to come. The club has since developed relationships with outside professionals, organizations, and companies. Our reach is far beyond just the UNC Charlotte campus.We compete in multiple competitions each year, including International Capture the Flag (iCTF) and CCDC. These competitions help to improve practical security skills and provide real world experience. We also travel to various security conferences on the east coast. Some of the conferences we attend are ISSA Summit, Carolina Con, ShmooCon, and B-Sides.
The 49th Security Division is dedicated to personal and professional growth. We have many social events and forums each year and everyone is welcome. We create our training materials out of experience, and learn from one another. No matter your knowledge base, your major, or your focus, there is something for you in 49SD. The 49th Security Division is composed of students in all departments that have a vested interest in computer and physical security. The club helps all members reach technical and professional excellence by engaging in hands on activities, cons, competitions and presentations.
We're always looking for new people. Any Experience Level. Any Major. Drop us a line.
