Announce 21, FOSDEM and Phishing

Dear Redbrick friends,

It’s now the second week of the new semester or week 21 overall.

In an attempt to fill you with excitement for the coming semester here is what we have planned:

Admin Talk: How to Avoid Phishing

Do you want to keep yourself safe online? Are you tired of losing control of your accounts and having no idea why?

We talk about some of the known and unknown techniques that hackers use to gain access to your account including phishing on unsuspecting victims and unknowingly giving your password to hackers and social engineering; giving away too much info to the people you think you can trust.

InterSocs Social

For the second year running, come join us along with five other NetSocs from five other lesser universities for some food and drinks and no doubt arguing.

Google #HashCode 2017

Once again, DCU School of Computing will be a Hub for Google’s HashCode competition.

The online Qualification Round will take place in LG25 on Thursday 23rd February 5-9pm. Hash Code is open to university students and industry professionals in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Participants compete in teams of two to four.

Registration is free of charge and will close on 20th February 2017 at 17:00 GMT.

FOSDEM

Finally - for those of you who got enough sleep, ate well and thus weren’t present at FOSDEM this year - all the videos of the talks are now available here: https://video.fosdem.org/2017/

Thank you all, Oskar McDermott (oskar)
