The purpose of this workshop is to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to protect their information assets. This class will immerse participants into an interactive environment where they will acquire fundamental understanding of various computer and network security threats such as identity theft, credit card fraud, online banking phishing scams, virus and backdoors, emails hoaxes, sex offenders lurking online, loss of confidential information, hacking attacks and social engineering.
More importantly, the skills learnt from this workshop helps participants take the necessary steps to mitigate their security exposure.
This workshop will also explore the various means that an intruder has, to gain access to computer resources. It will investigate weaknesses by discussing the theoretical background behind, and whenever possible, actually performing the attack.
The learning objectives of the workshop are as follows:
- Awareness on the latest terminologies related to cyber security.
- Assisting in developing a strategic view on addressing cyber security risks.
- Building a practical perspective to comprehend the possible impacts of such risks.
- Enabling the participants to provide appropriate direction and necessary cyber security context-driven oversight to protect their environments within their organisations.
This three days’ workshop also aimed at providing a practical perspective of the various risks that an organization and user faces from the ever-active adversaries. It takes the participants through a step-by-step build-up of how the latest high-impact attacks are planned and launched.
