Ligatt Security International has launched a Twitter campaign called “How To Become A Hacker in 15 Minutes,” which is designed to provide Internet users with knowledge about hacker techniques, so they can avoid falling victim to attacks.
“You don’t have to be a computer security expert or an IT manager or really have a big knowledge of security and computers. You could be like ‘Joe the Plumber.’ So we’re going to teach you exactly, step-by-step, on how it happens and what you can do,” Gregory Evans, said CEO of Ligatt, on 11Alive News Monday.
The Twitter messages will include instructions on ways to become a hacker. The daily tweets begin today.
The first tweet is: “Lesson 1: How to be a Hacker: Step 1 Reconnaissance – an initial activity in which a hacker attempts to gather information about a target.”
“It takes a hacker to know a hacker,” Evans said. “Cyber crimes, such as identity theft, are at an all-time high. I want to educate my consumer base about these issues, as well as provide them with daily tips on how to protect their personal information.”
