Tech Night

Time: March 27, 2017 - 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: 4405 Gates-Hillman

Description:

WINI will be running a TechNight (https://www.women.cs.cmu.edu/technights/) and we'll use a souped up version of my "Break, Secure, Repeat" hacker mentality activity!

When you unlock something, the lock isn't able to simply identify the correct key, but the pins are placed in such a way that the correct key will push them into alignment. Similarly, cybersecurity authorization requires identifying and understanding the mechanisms in place. We will also explore and discuss "hacker mentality" and the "break, secure, repeat" process that can be used to make things more secure through better understanding.

It should be a lot of fun, so if you're available, please register below by Thursday:
