40 students from 4 nationalities worked together for 5 days on Cybersafety, Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacking

In the week of December 5th, 45 Ethical-Hackers-to-be from Vocational and Higher Education institutes from Estonia, Belgium, Spain and the Netherlands worked together in Leeuwarden on Cybersafety, Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacking.

The programme kicked-off with a presentation of Wetsus, the Leeuwarden based European Centre of Water Technology that got hacked in 2020 by a not so ethical hacker. All students where right up to speed on the importance and real-life consequences of not making cybersecurity a top priority.

During the rest of the week, the students got to solve cyber-challenges while ice-skating during the ‘What-the-hack?!-Security-On-Ice’ race, battled against each other in a Capture-the-Flag competition and got to visit several ICT companies in Leeuwarden.

Besides that, the 45 students invaded the Microsoft Tech Event in their What the Hack?!-hoodies and learned all about the importance of cybersecurity for companies and the latest developments in the sector.

The presentation of Jeroen Jansen about the latest insights and developments was alternated by comedian video  intermezzo’s like this video of Michael McIntyre, who nearly lost his mind trying to remember his password.

With this final What-the-Hack event we finalise 3,5 years of cooperation between education and industry partners Cybersafety, Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacking.

We are happy to work with such great partners in this Erasmus+ project.
