One-Day Seminar on Information Security and Ethical Hacking

On July 25, 2017, the Dept. of Computer Science, Brainware University, in collaboration with National IT and Cyber Security Research Association organized a one-day seminar on the topic: Information Security and Ethical Hacking. The seminar was based on the premise that hacking can be a threat to national and personal security, but can also be an effective tool for mass surveillance, especially in detecting terrorist activities, and prevent casualties. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that the students here must understand the ethics of hacking. There were fifty-five attendees from B.Sc Computer Science, B. Sc. Hardware Networking, and M.Sc Hardware Networking. The Seminar saw discussions on Basic Networking, Practical Demonstrations on Ethical Hacking, Doubt Clearing, and Quiz sessions. Among many important outcomes, students got exposure to the security threats to network, websites, and apps; experience of ethical hacking; information about protection measures and tools; and certificate of participation at the end of the seminar. The icings on the cake were the announcements that an ‘Add-on’ course will be offered to the interested students by Brainware University in collaboration with National Institute for Industrial Training; and National IT and Cyber Security Research Association announced that the winner of the quiz would be provided with an opportunity to have free training with National Institute for Industrial Training.
