CyberSoc Summer Week 1: Give It A Go!

In this term's GIAG, we'll be in PZA/103 at 5pm playing around with command execution on a webpage, finding mystery flags! You will learn basic Linux commands and how to decode encryption, and there will be time at the end to socialise with other members of the society. No prior Cyber Security knowledge is needed, so just bring along a laptop or borrow one from the Piazza library. Looking forward to seeing you there!
