S&T recently partnered with one of its COEs to host a Hackathon that focused on addressing current critical infrastructure risks and related threats.
DHS announced the results of its first bug bounty program. Through the “Hack DHS” program, vetted cybersecurity researchers and ethical hackers are invited to identify potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities in select external DHS systems. In the first phase of this program, more than 450 vetted security researchers identified 122 vulnerabilities, of which 27 were determined to be critical. DHS awarded a total of $125,600 to participants for identifying these verified vulnerabilities.
DHS S&T announces the fourth course of the Hacking for Homeland Security (H4HS) program is set for the Spring 2022 Semester at Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU).
Course provides students with access to technical experts and business mentors to develop targeted tools, technologies, and knowledge products for use across the homeland security enterprise.
Students from James Madison University (JMU) will be tackling air travel security issues for DHS S&T as part of their spring semester of the Hacking 4 Defense (H4D) class.
