HI-TEC: Ethical Hacking

July 28, 2011 Sam Bowne


Learn how hackers steal passwords, bring down servers, and take control of your computer with malicious web pages. After a brief lecture and demonstration of the attacks, participants will perform real attacks using laptop computers provided at the workshop. Participants will see for themselves how vulnerable they are and will learn the value of anti-virus and other defenses. Classroom-ready lecture materials and instructions for the projects are available free of charge on the web.
