Security Training Session in Abu Dhabi

It is always a pleasure to talk to bright students about security topics and cool hacking tricks. Khalifa & Tudor went to HCT on April 2014 as UAE OWASP Chapter Leaders and presented real hacking demo’s on Web and Mobile Applications to the students.

In the middle of April 2015, Tudor has conducted another great session about different topics in Security which mainly focused on guiding the students in the Information Security field to approach their targets and choose their career paths to become successful security professionals.

Abu Dhabi Colleges’ Students Enjoy Web Security Workshops

Senior Computer Information Science (CIS) students at the HCT-Abu Dhabi Colleges, studying for their Bachelor of Applied Science in Information Systems (Security and Forensics), recently attended Web Security workshops to learn about web application security from an industry expert.

Students enjoyed the sessions by guest speaker Tudor Enache, a member of the Open Web Application Security Project’s (OWASP) Abu Dhabi Chapter. OWASP is an online community dedicated to web application security, and is a worldwide not-for-profit organisation that creates freely available documentation and articles, methodologies, tools and technologies.

The workshops covered different topics in cyber security, and included explanations of the importance of cyber security, history’s most critical security breaches and hackers’ common arsenals. Students enjoyed a live demonstration on exploiting a vulnerability in IOS that allows users to bypass the restrictions pass code.

Students benefited from both sessions that provided an excellent opportunity to look at the web application security field from a professional perspective, as well as finding out about potential career paths in information security.

HCT-Abu Dhabi Colleges will continue to develop the relationship with the OWASP Abu Dhabi chapter to host future workshops to expose students to the latest technologies and threats in web application security.

“The OWASP Session was really useful. We got to know the history behind computers, internet and viruses created. We also got to see and use the USB Rubber Ducky and the Raspberry Pi device. Overall, we figured out how to become security professionals,” said semester-7 student Fatima Fatema Al Hajeri.

“The OWASP presentation was very useful for us as security students. The presenter covers most common vulnerabilities in web applications. The session covered the history of hacking and recent huge attacks and this helps us to know how big and interesting the security field is,” said
