Info Trek Events Highlight in September 2018

September was a great month with full of activities that were worth your while. Let’s review them!

1 Cyber Security Awareness Workshop

On 13th September 2018, Info Trek had organized a Cyber Security Awareness Workshop at Info Trek Penang to increase the public awareness towards the importance of Cyber Security. Due to overwhelming response, there were total of 2 sessions and Mr. Clement Arul from Kaapagam Academy generously shared some very useful and important information regarding why Cyber Security is important and what one need to be cautious about.

The workshop was separated into 2 parts, first part is to gain mutual understanding and information about Cyber Security. This is when Mr. Clement showed some shocking statistics on how many cyber attacks happen in a year. More facts and figured were being showed in this session. Part 2 was a demo session where Mr. Clement hacked into a commercial website to show how he could manipulate the price he will be paying for his purchase. Of course, it is just for demo purpose and no harm were made. Mr. Clement also hacked into his own phone by just downloading a simple app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store. A simple download will result in our phone camera being compromise by hacker. Worst of all, without any sign that the phone camera is being turned on!

Cyber Security is not an option, it’s a must for everyone. Courses are coming soon, stay tuned!
