CyberHeroes: what a great success!

Time flies when you’re having fun. CyberHeroes week was officially completed on March 23rd, 2019. What an incredible experience that it was!

We started the week with insightful lectures – one on the History of Cryptography done by the PGP creator, Philip Zimmermann, and another done by KPN Chief Information Security Office Strategy and Policy team lead Oscar Koeroo on RSA encryption. We also hosted some lock-picking challenges at Cyberworkplace, exposing that the security technology we currently have is outdated and in desperate need of an update.

On Day 2 of CyberHeroes week, participants competed in a Capture the Flag (CTF) challenge and had a lecture on what does it take to be a good CTF player, along with a demo on password cracking from Melanie Rieback, CEO and Co-founder of Radically Open Security. Participants ended the day with a sight-seeing trip around Rotterdam.

Day 3 was a digital-forensics themed day. Participants got to visit the Seaport Police premises and even ride on a police patrol boat to get a truly immersive experience. Students had to tackle CSI-style challenges and later discussed their results. Finally, Floor Jansen, co-founder of Hack_Right and Strategic Adviser from Team High Tech Crime and Digital Forensics Expert Marinus Boekelo, presented on a real case. 

On Day 4 CyberHeroes week, participants got to learn to program smart devices (including a motion sensor, smart switch, lights, and a smart button) to perform a various range of effects together with Maarten van Duivenbode. This exposed our CyberHeroes to both the benefits and potential security risks smart devices might pose. Next, participants headed over to The Hague where they were welcomed at Cybersprint by its CISO and Product Owner, Cynthia Schouten, who gave a presentation and a tour at the HSD Campus where they visited the IoT lab of Leiden University and Splendo.  Soufian El Yadmani, a Security Analyst at Cybersprint, also presented on how individuals with cyber-skills can maximize their opportunities. Following this, Peter van Eijk from the Municipality of The Hague also enlightened our students on the work the Municipality does with cybersecurity companies and ethical hackers to stay in control of its online footprint. The day ended with a wonderful reception at the residence of the  US Ambassador.

On the next day, our CyberHeroes headed off to Hacklab in Leeuwarden, where they stayed in a prison-turned-hostel and participated in another CTF challenge. Participants also got to go sightseeing in the city.

To finish the entire program, a closing ceremony was held at Hacklab. CyberHeroes was everything we hoped it would be and more. We are so proud and thankful for everyone who worked to make this week a possibility: our staff, volunteers, sponsors, our participants. CyberHeroes could not have happened without the dedication of a team of people working together to make it a reality.

CyberHeroes visit Hacklab, Leeuwarden

Day 5 of CyberHeroes week started with a bus ride to our partners Hacklab in Leeuwarden; where we got to stay in a prison-turned hostel!

This was the first time the students from Cultivating Coders AND Cyberworkplace got to see the Hacklab premises and meet the Hacklab students! We jumped into another Capture the Flag (CTF) challenge created specifically for the CyberHeroes program by the DEFCON group where participants competed against each other individually. The winner will be announced on Saturday!

Once the students successfully completed the CTF challenge, they got to explore the city of Leeuwarden and learn some Frisian on their sight-seeing trip.

CyberHeroes at Cybersprint & the US Ambassador’s residence in The Hague

Day 4 of CyberHeroes week was a day full of a diverse array of activities.

First, Maarten van Duivenbode from Duivenbode ICT led a workshop on smart devices for our CyberHeroes participants. Through various different assignments, they learned how to program motion sensors, lights, smart switches, and smart buttons to perform a range of actions! This workshop gave participants a glimpse into how fun and useful smart devices can be, but also into their potential risks when it comes to security.

Next, participants headed over to The Hague where they were welcomed at Cybersprint by its CISO and Product Owner, Cynthia Schouten, who gave a presentation and a tour at the HSD Campus where they visited the IoT lab of Leiden University and Splendo.  Soufian El Yadmani, a Security Analyst at Cybersprint, also presented on how individuals with cyber-skills can maximize their opportunities. This was a great way to keep our students motivated to develop their cyber skills and to introduce them to potential career opportunities! Following this, Peter van Eijk from the Municipality of The Hague also enlightened our students on the work the Municipality does with cybersecurity companies and ethical hackers to stay in control of its online footprint.

In the evening, participants and all involved people in CyberHeroes were guests at the residence of the US Ambassador, Peter Hoekstra, in The Hague. During the reception, our students gave the Ambassador a Cyberworkplace hoodie!

CyberHeroes embark on a CSI-like adventure!

Ever wanted to be like one of those detectives on CSI? Well, today our participants got a glimpse into this world, complete with a police patrol boat adventure!

This could not have been possible without the help of Dirk-Jan Grootenboer and Peter Duin.

Dirk Jaan Grootenboer works as a digital local police officer at the Seaport Police, and Peter Duin works as a researcher for the police; specializing in cyber resilience.

At Rotterdam’s Sea Port Police headquarters, CyberHeroes participants participated in a CSI-style digital forensics challange.

After this, Floor Jansen, co-founder of Hack_Right and Strategic Adviser for Team High Tech Crime; and Digital Forensics Expert Marinus Boekelo, presented on their infamous international Hansa Market take over investigation ( i.e. “Operation Bayonet”)

What an incredible day!
