Robert Morris U. is working with Northwestern U. to bring an Ethical Hacking session for high school students to the Escape conference this coming May. This is a pretty cool workshop that they have run in the past, and this year they are setting it up specially for CPS students.
Please complete this interest form so that the organizers can get in touch. Based on interest, they will decide whether to create one or two sessions. There is a limited amount of space in the sessions, and registration will open closer to the date (May 6, 2017).
The Escape conference is an annual meeting in the area of data science and sports analytics. The Ethical Hacking session covers how the “bad guys and gals” create viruses, use wrappers, crack passwords, and exploit vulnerabilities in network devices (computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones) and information networks. This course will help participants understand how to protect themselves and others against malicious users on the Internet while exploring the world of information technology.
