Hacking 101: Creating a Virtual Lab

(Calling all women) CTRL+ENTER: Take a shortcut into the Cyber Space

Cisco/Cybersecurity Ventures 2019 Cybersecurity Almanac estimates that women make up 20% of the world’s cybersecurity workforce. That’s up significantly from 11% in 2014! Women are entering the Cyber Space at record numbers, but the future is still at risk. In order to fill the estimated 3.5 million vacant cybersecurity roles projected to be needed next year, the cybersecurity industry needs more women!

If you’re ready to take control of your career and enter the Cyber Space, we’ve got you covered on how to get started. Join us for a hands-on workshop designed to kickstart your cybersecurity skill-building.

Setting up a virtual lab is key to protecting your system while providing an environment where you can tinker, test, and try your hand at new hacking skills!

This Hacking 101 on Systems Virtualization will introduce a tool for creating a controlled environment on your laptop. A VirtualBox, a virtual vachine (VM), is an operating system or application environment that is installed and used for the purpose of imitating dedicated hardware. You will have the same experience on the VM that you would have on the bare metal system. This allows you to set up your own virtual hacking lab, in which you can conduct pen testing and improve your hacking skills without fear of damaging your system.

6:00-6:30 PM | Mix & Mingle
6:30-7:15 PM | Instructional Presentation
7:15-8:00 PM | Hands-On Lab

If you consider yourself a cybersecurity n00b, then Hacking 101 is for you. Hacking 101 events are the perfect, no-strings-attached way for you to learn hacking skills, get hands-on in the world of cybersecurity, and find your crowd. Hacking 101 was built for cyber n00bs (beginners), but make no mistake—this isn’t your typical 101 lecture! Each event will feature a hands-on workshop, led by cyber pros, designed to boost your cyber-skills. Hacking 101 is an opportunity for you to gain technical knowledge and find out if cybersecurity is something you’re passionate about. No experience is required. Just show up and learn something new!

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect many parts of the world, we know the potential impact is on everyone’s mind. The health and safety of you, your families, and our global community is our highest priority. With this in mind, we ask you to consider the following questions before attending an event at our SecureSet campus:

Have you been infected (or are potentially infected) with COVID-19?

Have you been in contact within the past fourteen (14) days with a person(s) who has been infected or is potentially infected with COVID-19?

Do you now have, or have you in the past fourteen (14) days, flu-like symptoms (such as respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties)?

Have you recently (within the past fourteen (14) days) returned from Mainland China, South Korea, Singapore, and the region of Lombardy, Italy, or been in contact with someone who has recently returned from these regions?

If you answer yes to any of the above, we kindly ask that you don’t attend a campus event – however we encourage you to join one of our upcoming webinars instead so you can still learn more about us.
