ISIS Lab's Hack Night

An intense introduction to offensive security

Developed from the materials of NYU Poly's old Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Analysis course, Hack Night is a sobering introduction to offensive security. A lot of complex technical content is covered very quickly as students are introduced to a wide variety of complex and immersive topics over thirteen weeks.

Hack Night culminates in a practical application of the skills and techniques taught, students complete a research project inspired by one of the lectures or exercise materials. By the end of the course, each student is expected to have a good understanding of all topics and a mastery of at least one topic.

Due to the involved nature of this course, we recommend students attend Hack Night in person.

If you have any questions or would like to attend a Hack Night session, you can contact the current curators at

Hack Night is developed by students and friends of the ISIS Lab.

Hack Night is every Wednesday during the regular semester at 6 PM in the ISIS Lab at NYU Poly.
