Secure your Cyber, 24 & 25 Aug 2019


You are invited to join us at this August for a mid-trimester break weekend to learn all about security and hacking.


You! Anyone who is learning about software, and wants to learn about how to make software secure… with a dose of “how to hack” thrown in.

To clarify: The two days will aim to suit students with a 100-level knowledge of software development. However, you’re still welcome if you’re not a University student… anyone interested in security should come!


Two days of training in the art of securing the web… covering topics like:


Victoria University of Wellington
Kelburn Campus

We will be running the two day activities in Maclaurin Lecture Theatre 3 (MC 103) at the Victoria University Kelburn Campus.

Check out the campus map and look at bus times. Parking is limited around the campus, and there are towaway and time restrictions.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Kelburn campus, let us know on your registration confirmation form and we’ll meet you and show you around.

If you have accessibility requirements, get in touch and we’ll make sure things are sorted.


Saturday & Sunday
24 & 25 August
10am - 6pm

Please arrive before 10am, so we can start promptly.


Register now for your free ticket to the best security-themed weekend event at Victoria University this August!

Note: Spaces are limited, and people are notorious for registering and not attending free events. In the week before the event you’ll have to confirm your registration to keep your place.


Over the course of the two days there will be activities and speakers. You will be learning about all aspects of security from some of the best in New Zealand!

Check out the handout you’ll be given on arrival.


We will be providing a light lunch, catering for vegetarian and gluten free diets. Please bring a water bottle and any snacks you need to keep you going.

The Kelburn campus will be pretty quiet on a mid-term break weekend, so don’t count on anywhere being open for coffee or food.
