Cybersecurity is the current flavour of the season.

Keeping this in mind, a workshop was organised on the last day of the tech fest exclusively for the freshmen on the topic – ‘Ethical Hacking and Cyber Security‘. The students were addressed by the esteemed guests, honourable Director Sir and the Prof. In charge of all the technical clubs of the college before the seminar. A highly skilled trainer Saumya from I India, expatiated on the terminology associated with cybersecurity such as firewall, ransomware, virus, hacking before distinguishing between a white hat hacker and a hacker. The audience listened in rapt silence, amazed and willing to learn different methods of hacking in order to protect their information from several cyber threats.
In order to involve the audience gathered to witness the gruelling competitions, an on-spot event i.e., wire buzz was organised to attract the crowd. It had a circuit loop which had a wire gauge as a handler. The loop was supposed to be completed without touching any element of it. The winner was awarded a prize on completing the loop.
The event concluded with huge pomp and show and thus, was successful in the perfect manner.
It really presented a remarkable event being organised by the IETE Students’ Chapter, B.I.T. Sindri. This event certainly raised the bar of the technical fests being organised in the college campus.
More such events are awaited.
