KIC IT department conducted a workshop that introduced the students to Ethical Hacking.
The workshop was led by Mr. Mohammed Omar Binomar Baomar, KIC Student, IT Department. Ethical hacking involves an authorized attempt to gain unauthorized access to a computer system, application, or data. Carrying out an ethical hack involves duplicating strategies and actions of malicious attackers. This practice helps to identify security vulnerabilities that can then be resolved before a malicious attacker has the opportunity to exploit them.
This workshop showed the way of the hacker thinking before hacking the system by explaining to the main producers that they implement it before they start attacking the victim, also the way of how to secure your system from unauthorized access. On the other hand, ethical hackers use their knowledge to secure and improve the technology of organizations. They provide an essential service to these organizations by looking for vulnerabilities that can lead to a security breach.
Seven students attended the workshop and reported high levels of satisfaction in terms of learned concepts, workshop structure, and in-class engagement.
