usd AG CST Academy, usd HeroLab

Hacker Contest Summer Semester 2019

The usd HeroLab will once again teach the course “Hacker Contest” at the Technical University (TU) Darmstadt and the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt (h_da) this summer semester.

During the 2019 summer semester, students will have the opportunity to experience IT security in practice. In a secure environment, they will try out attack methods and protective measures for networks, systems and applications. The usd HeroLab‘s own PentestLab will provide the technological basis. The practical course will cover a wide range of topics revolving around penetration testing, such as a selection of OWASP Top 10 web vulnerabilities.

Christian Frei, Head of usd HeroLab, will host the event at TU Darmstadt. Ralf Almon, Managing Consultant Security Analysis & Pentests, will take over the event at h_da.

Christian Frei is looking forward to working with the students: “We’re really happy that the students show such great interest in our Hacker Contest. With this practical module, we can give back to the community by sharing some of the knowledge we gain through our daily work and our research and training students in the practical aspects of IT security”.
