We’re back after the long holiday 😉 Lots of kids were still on vacation so the class wasn’t fully packed today 🙂
Ok we learned a new thing today: CyberSecurity 😉
This good site teach us about CyberSecurity by pretending that we were a CTO of a start-up social network company 😉
First we chose the avatar
then the company
and then the server was being attacked by virus so we have to decide what defense to be applied to the server with only 3 coins 😀
To gain more coins, we have to do three challenges: Coding Challenge, Password Cracking Challenge and Social Engineering Challenge
The coding challenge was quite easy, most of ProCodeCG Kids have done this with Blockly or Thunkable
Then we had to create some secure password and crack some passwords 🙂 This taught us how to create secure passwords and the logic of people who do cracking
We also learned about social engineering fraud. Like phishing email.
We learned to identify suspicious things about phishing emails
And after we finish the challenge the company will grow!
This is another example of identifying suspicious website
A really good way to inform the kids about fake websites! 😉
We also learned how to differ fake caller by identifying red flags in the conversation.
We listened to the recording and identify weird sentences
So kids will aware about phishing attempt 🙂
After finishing all challenge, we will get more coins and be able to protect our company fully 🙂
The next level of social engineering challenge
We learned that we should be really careful about credit cards information
As the company grows, there will be mor challenges and attack. But with more coins, we deploy firewall, buy more servers and filter traffic. This way kids will learn about things they should pay attention about cyber security of a company.
Yaaay, fully protected 🙂
We finished all the tasks today so we have time to discuss about our project to be presented on upcoming ProCodeCG Kids Exhibition 17 Aug 2016 🙂
Capt. Cinta had also some time to continue her Python challenge on CodeSaya.com 🙂
We’ll be back again next week! 🙂
