Workshop on Digital Self-Defence
In view of exploring the opportunity in the field of Cyber Security & Threat Intelligence, a workshop was organised for engineering students. Mr L.S.Chhabra, Founder and Director of Cyber Defence Intelligence was the Guest Speaker.
For various private or government organizations, nothing is more important than their customer database and hackers steal their important data and demand a big amount of money as ransom from them to return it back. Moreover, they sell stolen details on dark web (black market of hackers). The companies need ethical hackers to test and maintain the security of their servers, websites and network. Hence, awareness in the area was essential for students to know the vast opportunities in this sector. Students learnt how they get hacked through computers and phones and what measures they should take for securing themselves.
Real life cases of Digital Security were discussed and research opportunities in the domain of cyber security were also shared. Practical Demonstrations on Digital Security Threat were shown and it was followed with queries session.
Students found the session very informative.
