We’re starting something new to help you stay safer online, #hackerdrills.
Why Hacker Drills?
Maybe you remember a time in your school days practicing fire, tornado, or even earthquake drills inside of a school. We’ll in the digital world we have a lot of various threats and one of those comes from individual or networked individuals who want something that you have — your personal information, the goods in your crypto wallet or anything else they might find valuable.
As our community grows, many who join will be newer to the world of Web3, digital wallets, and the safety precautions that are required to allow you to keep having fun online! And even as veterans of the Web3 world, new hacking methods may arise, and we just want to help everyone develop a mindset that helps you keep your valuables online safer. We know that we won’t be able to teach you everything — but we do hope these #hackerdrills will allow you to learn from each other.
What’s a Hacker Drill?
Across our Discord and Telegram platforms we will run a #hackerdrill just like a fire drill, at any time of day, at any time of the week.
When does it start?: You’ll see the above image posted and it will only be posted from an admin or team member
What do I do?: A written scenario will be posted immediately after the #hackerdrill image, followed by the question, “What would you do?”. Choose to answer in the POSITIVE or NEGATIVE.
Participation: Read other responses and leave a reaction:
- 👍 = You’re safe!
- 👎 = You’re not safe!
- 🤷 = Don’t know! You could be safe or you could not be safe…
But there is more…
