Website Hackathon Game - Learn how the bad guys operate so you can better defend

Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) is proud to partner with Security Innovation to offer members a fun "find the vulnerabilities" game that teaches the importance of effective website security and secure coding habits.  Leveraging cheat sheets and other easy to understand tips, participants of all skill levels can learn how hackers break into websites in a fun and realistic environment. The game features authentic (and intentionally vulnerable) websites as well as an expert-guided training session to introduce you to core concepts via the game we’ll play as a group.

In this guided simulation, you will have the opportunity (and be shown how) to:
            • Break into someone else's account
            • Transfer and steal money
            • Add items to an online shopping cart and buy them for $0
            • Uncover secret information — like your boss's salary!

All of the hacking is purely for fun and done on fake websites. Come learn valuable skills and grow your security knowledge.
