International Card Services (ICS) made a donation of three high-tech laptops and other devices to Cyberworkplace! ICS often receives devices that were confiscated from cyber-criminals such as fraudsters. Often, these devices are not returnable, which means that they often end up being piled-up in storage facilities.
Now that Cyberworkplace has received some of these devices, they will be put to better, ethical use. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with ICS!

ICS steunt Cyberworkplace met nieuwe laptops
ICS heeft een aantal nieuwe laptops gedoneerd aan Cyberworkplace. Cyberworkplace is een non-profit initiatief uit Rotterdam om jongeren kennis en kunde bij te brengen over cybersecurity. ICS ondersteunt dit initiatief, omdat het voorkomen en bestrijden van cybercriminaliteit ertoe leidt dat ook de online veiligheid van klanten van ICS toeneemt.

One of our students represented Cyberworkplace on the 3FM Tussenuur podcast! On this episode about media wisdom, Mohammed explained how to stay secure on social media and gave some background on his experience with Cyberworkplace
Mohammed touched on the fact that many people are not happy with their traditional education; and he was one of these people. That is what motivated him to look for a “hacker school”– which is how he found Cyberworkplace!
