Study program
ICT & Business - Semester 6

A group of students at Sligro investigate change management within ICT.

ICT & Smart Mobile - Semester 3

Sligro fulfills the client role in the group project and provides feedback during the process.

ICT & Cyber Security - Semester 3

Sligro participated in a security test (pen-test) of their operating environment.
Students thus develop their ethical hacking skills further, but also tuning can experience with business and contractual side of such a journey.
Tests were external tests from the Internet, internal network testing, application testing and code reviews, to social engineering, for example, a phishing test at employees.
The companies have thus come to acquire a little more insight into their technical and organizational security and awareness and potential improvements in it.
