Description

About our workshop

This is security awareness training with a difference. In this 1/2 day workshop, we'll be working with real hackers to understand how they break into organisations. We'll teach the tools of the trade such as lock picking, wifi hacking and SMS spoofing to see how they get to a company’s private information.

By seeing (and actually performing) the attacks that are used in the wild, this workshop will show why security is important, as well as equipping you with the skills and the tools to protect yourself and your business.

This will be a straightforward, interesting and easy to understand workshop that is suitable for anyone who is looking to secure themselves or their business online. It will enable you to understand and identify security risks and protect against them before they happen.
