I wrote an interactive phishing lab website!

March 31, 2023 | by siunam


In my Higher Diploma in Cybersecurity at Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE), there is a curriculum called “Whole Person Development - Collaboration, Teamwork & Social Engagement” (SDD4006), which requires student to conduct a group project aimed at “How young people can learn from cyberattacks and develop good practices in cybersecurity.” by achieving one of the United Nations (UN)’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). After some discussions with group members, we decided to build a website that teaches people about phishing attacks through an interactive lab.


What did I learned?

During the website building process, I learned about both back-end and front-end skills, such as the basics of PHP, including how to connect to a MySQL database via PHP’s MySQLi (MySQL Improved Extension). I also gained a better understanding of basic JavaScript, AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript And XML), and Bootstrap.

Aside from technical skills, I learned how to communicate with people, such as evaluating different ideas with groupmates and presenting content to an audience.


Overall, this project taught me a lot, including technical and verbal skills.
