Hacker Contest with TU Darmstadt and h_da enters the next round

29. April 2021

„This semester we had more registrations for our Hacker Contest than ever before," Markus Schader, Senior Security Consultant at usd HeroLab, is pleased to say. „So my colleague Matthias Göhring and I have the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience as pentesters with many prospective IT security experts again.”

In the summer semester, our security analysts are once again offering the „Hacker Contest” course at TU Darmstadt and Hochschule Darmstadt.

In joint remote sessions, the students deal with IT security topics in a practical way. For this purpose, the usd HeroLab opens its PentestLab, which provides the technical basis for the Hacker Contest. In this controlled environment, the participants learn how to search for vulnerabilities, can try out tools and attack methods for networks and systems and apply the appropriate protective measures.

We wish the participants and our two colleagues a lot of fun and success at the Hacker Contest.
