IASA sponsors EMU Student Free-to-Participate Attack/Defend competition (ISA Challenge) on-campus on April 12th – Register by April 4th

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

My name is Tomasz Bania and I am the President of the Information Assurance Student Association at Eastern Michigan University.

Our Student Organization is organizing a Free-to-Participate Attack/Defend competition (ISA Challenge) on-campus on April 12th and we are asking all professors if they could make an announcement in class regarding registration for the event.

Here are a few quick FAQ’s:

What is the ISA Challenge?

The Information Security Assurance Challenge is an Attack/Defend competition organized by the Information Assurance Student Association. The ISA Challenge puts a non-traditional spin on similar competitions such as CCDC and ISTS by integrating all aspects of our Information Assurance program and more. Whether your interest is hacking, defending, management, or something else, everyone is encouraged to register and attend as a great way to meet others in the IA Program as well as building skills that can help you further along in the IA Program.

What if I don’t know much?

No Worries! The ISA Challenge will have competitive aspects for those of all skill levels and we greatly encourage everyone to register and attend.

What if I don’t know anyone?

Not A Problem! There is both a team registration and an individual registration available. Individual registrants will be put together with other individual competitors to form teams.

What is the Cost of Registration?

Registration is Free and open to all EMU Students.

When is Registration?

Registration Starts Now and ends on 4/4/14 (or when all 60 slots are filled). Slots are filling up so it is recommended to register soon!

Will there be any sort of practice environment available?

Details of a possible practice environment will be announced after registration.

Who can I contact for more information?

Feel free to E-Mail Tomasz Bania at with any questions you or your students may have.

Thank You in Advance for spreading the word!


Best Regards,


Tomasz Bania

1st Annual Detroit Chapter ISACA Scholarship Competition

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

ISACA Detroit has been sponsoring scholarships for full time students in the Metro Detroit area for several years.

To qualify, the students had to write an essay, which was evaluated by the ISACA Detroit Board members.

This year, we thought we would enrich the experience of the students even further by providing them with a “real world” experience by asking them to work on a “case study” and present their conclusions to a panel of potential future bosses. So, welcome to the 1st Annual Detroit Chapter ISACA Scholarship Competition.

This competition will start on April 4, 2014 at 6 p.m. and end on April 6, 2014 at 2 p.m. The format of the competition is as follows:

  • You are free to form a team. It is recommended that the team consist of two students, one with a background of IT Auditing or Assurance, and the second with a background of IT Security and Web Applications
  • A university can send multiple teams to the competition
  • Teams will be competing for three scholarships: 1st place is $3,000, 2nd place is $2,000 and 3rd place is $1,000. All
    team participants receive a honorable mention on ISACA’s website and in the monthly newsletter, Databyte.
  • The case study will be made available on April 4, 2014 at 6 p.m. on the following website:
  • Registration deadline is April 4, 2014 at 3 p.m. An email invitation to register for the Scholarship Competition will be sent out soon as well as a registration link posted to the ISACA Detroit Chapter web page.

Sec Consultant Jobs at Accenture

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Hi James,

I’m not sure if you remember me, but I graduated from with my B.S. in Information Assurance at EMU in April 2012. I have been working at Accenture as a technology security consultant for almost 2 years now. We have quite a few openings around the country and I know many of the people at EMU are qualified for the positions. I am willing to work with people to get these positions filled if you can help me spread the word.

Most of our positions are for experienced hires, so I would prefer this be targeted towards people in the graduate program. I am open to people in the undergraduate program as long as they have real world experience and not just an internship.

Since we are a global company there are too many positions available to post them all to the IA Blog. For each person that is interested I recommend the following:

1. Send me their resume (Word or PDF) and a short description of their preferred job (just so I know which roles to look for).
2. I will review the information they send to me and find a best fit job for them.
3. I will talk with them to make sure they are interested in the job and understand the requirements since most of the jobs will require travel.
4. I will submit a referral for them.

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.
