Cyber Security Challenge

Duration: 10:00am - 1:00pm

Description: Teams of up to four students will work collaboratively to evaluate an email inbox and determine Phishing vs Legitimate emails to detect fraud. They will be discovering information and answer questions within the allotted time.

Format: The Verizon 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report points out that phishing and pretexting represent 93% of all social breaches in the study. Email was the most common attack vector (96%). Phishing is often the first step in a larger chain of events leading to a breach; an email-based attack is often “followed by malware installation and other actions that ultimately lead to exfiltration of data.” Each team will have a laptop provided connected to a VM Network. Working as a team they will probe the emails in an inbox and look for signs of Phishing to answer questions presented to them and suggest methods to prevent future attacks. Each team will be given six challenges having a different point value based on difficulty. All questions will be based on a quick demonstration and the lessons from Hacker Highschool developed by ISECOM –
