Check out Hack Mac2017
The event is supported by the Optus Macquarie Cyber Security Hub as well as Fortinet, a well known cyber security equipment vendor.
The event is run from a purpose built environment that allows close monitoring by Jeremy Koster, Macquarie University Information Security Manager. The University has extensive protection measures to ensure that staff and student data remains safe. As typical in the industry, the University regularly commissions similar activities to be performed by trusted third parties to test the Universities external defences.
A select group of undergraduate students will compete in various hacking challenges to raise awareness of cyber security across the University student and staff community. Participants will have a range of hacking challenges:
Proximity card cloning
WiFi encryption cracking
Capture the flag hacking challenges
Breaking into The University's own internet-facing systems
