Hacklab High School provides awareness and in-depth learning on a variety of cybersecurity-related topics by engaging students through classroom training and practical, hands-on exercises.
What’s in it for me as a student?
You’re all aware of how hackers are portrayed in mainstream media. A hooded guy is sitting in a basement furiously typing away at a keyboard while a neat progress bar shows the amount of “hacking” still left to do. . The difference between this portrayal and real life hacking is night and day!
Hacking is a cerebral activity taxing your creative side as much as your technical side. Hackers don’t lack social skills, in fact, it is the one thing they often use to perpetrate their attacks.
In this classroom setting, you will learn about the basics of hacking. Besides that, a safe learning environment for you to practice your newly learned skills. Learning to hack should always go hand in hand with ethics. You will be taught how to use your skills responsibly!
How does it look?
Theoretical sessions are provided on the following subjects:
- Google hacking & privacy
- Social engineering
- Network hacking
- Web hacking
- Hacking ethics
Social engineering, web hacking, and network hacking include practical, hands-on sessions where students can learn and practice their skills in a real-world environment.
The Social Engineering session involves the students using information they find online into tricking a (fake) helpdesk to provide the password for someone’s home network.
The Web Hacking session shows the students how to gather information from a public-facing website, and use that information as well as exploiting common mistakes made by web developers to gain access to non-public sections of the website.
The Network Hacking session involves students exploiting misconfigurations to gain access to a computer, printer, router, and webcam that are hooked up to a local network.
You will learn through theoretical lessons and practical hands-on exercises, the basics of hacking. In addition, you will take home:
- Classroom booklets and workshop material
- Online resources
- And prizes for the hacker of the day!
