May 19, 2017
Webster Leiden launched a capture the flag event together with Hackershub to generate awareness about the MS Cybersecurity program.
The capture the flag event was held on Feb. 16, where interested students learned about the cybersecurity program, study options, flexibility and what they could expect from the only accredited American university in the Netherlands.
During the virtual capture the flag event, students learned to hack into a system and find flags in those systems. Hackershub is a meet-up for anyone interested in IT security and for professionals already working in the field to discuss topics and issues.

About Webster's Cybersecurity Program
An MS degree in cyber security is one of the most currently ‘in-demand’ qualifications in the world. With the proliferation of Internet and smart devices, there is a lot of sensitive information in cyber space that needs to be adequately protected. Also, government data and classified corporate data can become victims of data theft. During this course, we teach students the basic and advanced skills regarding cyber security. Students gain practical and applicable knowledge about this field, which they can then apply in their professional lives. We help them develop critical thinking and problem solving skills that come in handy when it comes to local or international legal systems, private and public policies, and several key ethical issues. Students can directly apply these skills to cyber security and other sensitive areas like fraud, theft, information protection, terrorism, digital forensics, intelligence and counterintelligence.
