Winter 2023 Week 5: Intro to Cybersecurity with Cyber@UCI

On February 6th, 2023, WICS collaborated with Cyber@UCI to present an introductory cybersecurity workshop. Students learned the basics of cybersecurity and were given some tips to get started. The workshop began with a follow-along demonstration, as everyone worked together to hack a website (with specific permission to do so!). Upon successful hacking, workshop participants broke into small groups to try to hack another website. WICS members and the presenters walked around to offer hints and answer questions throughout the small group activity. There was lots of chatter and cheers of success throughout the night as participants put their new skills to the test!
