Intro to Cybersecurity: Brute Force & Password Protection Workshop | Online

January 25, 2022

January 25, 2022

7:00 pm To 8:00 pm

Online: ET (USA)


Event Description

Learn why a longer password may not always be a more secure password and how a long text file containing 8.4 billion passwords leaked.

With databases being offered for sale every day that often contain millions of usernames and passwords from various sources, credentials are being sold and repackaged, giving access to all of that data to potential hackers. Join Flatiron School as one of our lead Cybersecurity instructors demonstrates the basics of brute forcing and the math behind it.

What You’ll Learn

In this fast-paced interactive session, you will:

  • Question your own passwords and their security
  • See how quantum computers break everything we know in technology
  • Appreciate math, even if you still are not a math fan. (We may convince you!)
  • Learn numbers bigger than a Googol

Who is the workshop for?

No experience is required to attend! If you’ve had some experience with cybersecurity in general, there is still a lot to learn from this workshop. This is a no-strings-attached opportunity for you to gain knowledge and find out if cybersecurity is something you’re passionate about. Just show up, and learn something new!
