Ethical Hacking Student Presentation

This week I was at John I. Leonard High School in Greenacres, Florida speaking on behalf of ITWomen on the topic of Ethical Hacking.

The nature of the discussion was not how to do it but more what it is about and why it is important. While I hit the key points in the qst half of the presentation, the second half has more details about the processes and methodology for those interested.

While discussing my time with Citibank during one of their attacks, various co-workers that presented their own problems and unique resolution and my own experiences with hackers on my systems and those of our clients we hit the highs and lows of the topic.

In bringing it to the students level, I discussed how this type of police work has all the same action but with much less physical risk. We also discussed how to report questionable activities.

The high school kids also admitted Twitter has jumped the shark...only to say they prefer Facebook.

I credit 3 primary references which I used to put it together if anyone wants to look at it in the original forms.

Here is the link to the presentation.
