On Friday 7 February the BITE faculty were pleased to welcome Iain Spinks-Gillen (QSTM), Head of Cyber Security who provided a taster lesson in Ethical Hacking.
He was able to break some myths about the life of an Ethical Hacker, explain the law and provide a lot of examples of how skills they are learning in lessons are used in the day-to-day life of this exciting career path.
All students were then given the opportunity to ethically hack a simulated banking website safely using a sandbox environment. I am very pleased to announce that they all managed to complete the challenge and would like to add a massive thank you to Mr Spinks-Gillen who took time out of his busy schedule, as he has truly inspired the next generation of programmers!
