Lesson overview

It seems like every other day there is a story in the news about a company being attacked by hackers, or people's personal details being released online. We are trusting companies to protect our personal information, but we need more people with digital skills to protect us from these attacks.

To stop a cyber criminal, it helps to think like one.

In this interactive lesson, you are going to step into the shoes of a cyber criminal and learn to rob a bank.

  • First, you'll need to find a way to remotely connect into the banks computer system. You'll use a command line tool to do this.

  • Then you'll find a way to access the login names and passwords for all the banks and business customers.

  • Finally, you'll log into the Strathclyde Bank website using these stolen customer details and transfer money to our own secret bank account.
