The SUSEC CBERGHANA Cyberclub was launched in the last week of August 2021, the launch and symposium took place at the School's Auditorium. 

The Students presented four projects they created. These projects were;

The students had been working on the projects for some months.

The Elective ICT Students also presented their final projects on the same day. Their projects were:

Ransomware is a type of malware when it gets into your computer or network it will encrypt all your data and then it will display a message on your computer screen that data has been encrypted until the victim pays something, normally they ask the victim to pay money in the form of bitcoin. 

The criminal will not release the data.

It can affect individuals or organizations, it doesn’t just occur by one person, normally there is a syndicate of criminals. 

So there is a group of criminals known as developers, they are very good software gurus, software engineering guys, so they come together to develop the ransomware exploit, the exploit is the actual malware they use to launch the attack. 

So they will develop it and normally advertise it. They give it to sales people, public relations people on the dark web. The advertisement and others don’t show on the real internet world.

There is another internet world we don’t see but it is there. You have to use specialized tools to get there. So once the exploit is developed by the ransomware developer, another group known as the affiliates will go and buy. Some of them will not have money, so they won’t buy but they will rather subscribe. After the subscription or after the affiliate has bought it, the affiliates will then package it in the form of a fake link, fake image, whatever and then they will deploy it in real life.  It can be deployed on let’s say WhatsApp.

Most times, it is deployed as a fake link, in a fake e-mail, so the e-mail will be presented as if it is coming from your Bank, relative, whatever. There are some people everything they see they will click on it, and so they will click on it. If the attacker or the affiliate targets organizations like the bank then, the entire computer system of the bank gets frozen and they will display the message on computers until somebody pays the ransom the data will not be released.

This is how the ransomware as a service model or a business looks like. It can make anyone rich overnight, because everyday, every night, an attack is going on and we get victims who get money to pay, and the victims are basically the financial institutions, health care institutions and utility institutions. .

To get an understanding, the drama troupe is coming to demonstrate it, so that we get a detail understanding of how this type of attack occurs.

Thank you.

G.K. Afram - Hour of Code facilitator

G.K. Afram is a Computer Science Educator. He holds a Masters Degree in Information Technology from Sikkim Manipal University, India,  a Bachelors Degree in Information Technology(UEW, Ghana) and a Professional Teachers' Certificate. His passion for CS is wonderful and this made him introduce's CS curriculum to his students and CS First Curriculum from Google. His students have developed love and passion for coding ever since. So far there are over 500  students in the CS club and new members enroll every single day. We believe the sky is the start. This club will begat great coders soon!. 

Everybody can learn to code!

Our Students are coding! These are their evidence, Great Job guy!

Computer Science Students Club (CSSC), SUSEC

The students are introduce to coding using the curriculum, CS First from Google and the GES ICT Syllabus. At SUSEC coding is fun due to the practical approach we employ to teach our students.
