Cybersprint challenges University students

by Cybersprint News Mar 12, 2019

Cybersprint takes part in the ‘Entrepreneurial Skills Course’. 30 master students visited the HSD campus on 7 March 2019, marking the start of a seven-week long programme. The goal is to give the students experience and a real business case in an IT organisation. Cybersprint is one of the 10 HSD partners that has set the students a challenge and will support them through the process of solving it. 

As a collaboration between Technical University Delft, University Twente and The Hague Security Delta (HSD), 30 students started the programme that will provide them with insights into the challenges that organisations, start-ups and entrepreneurs in IT face.

During the kick-off event, the organisations pitched their assignment, after which the students were randomly linked to one of the 10 organisations in groups of three. The students had the opportunity to ask questions in a one-on-one setting with the start-up. During this meeting, the students and organisations could define and prepare the tasks ahead. All the students are enrolled in a Computer Science master’s. This gives them broad background knowledge to be able to tackle the challenge.

Cybersprint has asked the students to help research and create a European market analysis within the cyber security domain for the Digital Risk Protection services.

The programme will take seven weeks in total, ending with the students presenting their solutions to the organisations on 25 April. Partners of the Hague Security Delta can benefit from the students’ insights and theoretical perspectives. The programme is a mutual learning process in which both sides will gain experience and insights. Not only do the students work on a real business challenge, they can also get a first-hand glimpse of the potential job opportunities in the field of cyber security.

We are looking forward to their outcomes and recommendations.

The Rise of Automated Hacking

There is a shift in the way cyber criminals are targeting organisations. The methods of mass phishing and hacking are making way for more directed and personalised attacks. They carefully select their targets and craft convincing messages. However, that takes much more time and preparation. To make up for that, they now use automated techniques to carry out attacks. How can you protect your organisation from this emerging threat?
