Cyber security at W5!



The OWASP AppSec European conference came to Belfast on 8th May.

This major conference brought many of Europe’s top cyber security experts.  50 of our Year 10s attended to learn about cyber security, and to try out a few cyber skills.

The outreach day was held in W5, Belfast on Monday 8th May 2017, educating school children on topics such as:

  • How to protect web sites and computers from being hacked.

  • How to protect themselves online, and what triggers tell them someone is trying to hack them.

  • Jobs and careers in cyber security.

The students were accompanied by Mrs Mulholland, Mr McArdle and Mr McEvoy
