I was invited to join and give a talk in an IT Youth Congress last November 2013. I came with my colleagues, Ernesto Boydon and Noel Anonas from Asia Pacific College (APC) Makati City, Philippines.

The event was held in Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges in Nabua, Camarines Sur in the Bicol Region.

The key points of my talk are:

1) Define ethical hacking (specifically to answer the question: Is there such thing as ethical hacking?)

2) Information Security as a discipline. I included this as a key point because majority of the audience are either Computer Science or Information Technology undergraduates. I wanted them to know that Infosec exists and there are a lot of career opportunities for them in the said field.

3) The need for cybercrime law. I obviously had to emphasize the need for a “real” cyber crime law that will protect the people especially their virtual assets.

I really enjoyed my stay in Nabua. I would like to thank the Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges for sponsoring my trip there!
