usd AG to Again Teach at TU Darmstadt

21. October 2020

During the 2020/2021 winter semester, experienced usd HeroLab security analysts will once again teach the course “Hacker Contest” at the Technical University of Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt).

In joint remote sessions students will have the opportunity to experience IT security in practice. In the secure environment of the usd PentestLab, they will try out tools, attack methods and protective measures for networks, systems and applications. The practical course includes pentest-specific topics, such as a selection of OWASP Top 10 web vulnerabilities.

Matthias Göhring, Head of usd HeroLab and Markus Schader, usd Senior Security Consultant IT Security, will host the course at TU Darmstadt. “Sharing our knowledge and experience as pentesters with students is extremely important for us. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, which proves that we are doing a lot of things right by teaching IT security in a practical manner”, says Göhring.
