What is SWIFT?

We are Students with an Interest in the Future of Technology, we are the premier information technology and security organization at Cal Poly Pomona. We aim to inspire and create a generation of students who are aware and capable of dealing with the dynamic landscape of information security, cyber security, and information technology. Together we can build a secure future through training, experience, and education. Let's work together to create and learn something new. Don't just take our word for it.
