The CADS attend Worcestershire Skills Show
The Cyber Apprenticeship Development Scheme (CADS) set up by 3SDL aims to help students from local sixth forms to develop their skills and gain work experience with the Cyber Industry. It also allows students the opportunity to join 3SDL on a graduate apprentice scheme.
The CADS team recently attended the Worcestershire Skills Show at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich. The event was aimed at years 7 to 13 from local schools to allow them to understand potential pathways for when they leave school.
The group was challenged with designing a stand and with activities which would gain the attention and interests of the students. The group spent two sessions planning and creating various different demonstrations and activities to help students gain a better understanding of Cyber security and inform them of the potential careers and opportunities within the industry.
The team discussed, through the use of Kaspersky's Cyber Threat Real Time map, how cyber-attacks are happening all the time, all over the globe. They then moved on to present how a USB stick can be used to run ransomware malware on a computer by utilising the hacking tool known as a rubber ducky. The final demonstration included the use of cree.py to show how geolocated tweets can be compiled and tracked to find out where individuals live.
