The ethical hacking society is a newly founded club and we welcome anyone to join us on our journey of learning ethical hacking. This is a computer based society but anyone is welcome to join the club, it doesn't matter if you're an expert or a beginner this will be a journey for everyone.
Ethical hacking involves an authorized attempt to gain unauthorized access to a computer system, application, or data. Carrying out an ethical hack involves duplicating strategies and actions of malicious attackers. This practice helps to identify security vulnerabilities which can then be resolved before a malicious attacker has the opportunity to exploit them.
Also known as “white hats,” ethical hackers are security experts that perform these assessments. The proactive work they do helps to improve an organization’s security posture. With prior approval from the organization or owner of the IT asset, the mission of ethical hacking is opposite from malicious hacking.
We plan to learn about CTF's and hopefully go to ZeroDays in dublin which is a CTF competition in Dublin, CTF's also known as Capture the flag is an event where teams try and find a hidden file or software that is hidden deep within a computer, the first team to find said file are declared the winners. We hope to plan out a bunch of fun computer based activities in the club!
