[+] The Aim
The idea; a get together to share ideas, knowledge and war stories from within the IT Security industry with the overall aim of creating a local group for like minded individuals to meet on a regular basis.
In each meeting we aim to have 2 – 3 presentations lasting for 30 – 45 mins each in which anything and everything can be discussed, i.e. application, infrastructure, mobile, software and hardware security to mention a few topics. We also aim to occasionally host Capture the Flag events and Workshops during the meets as and when something ‘funky’ presents itself.
[+] Upcoming Events
Date: Thursday 6th April
Location: Centre for Computing History, Cambridge
Details: Meetup group
Upcoming events are likely to be bimonthly as this will allow us more time to book speakers and have contingencies in place if/when required. Meetings will be held on either the 1st or last Thursday of the month. Again, having a little flexibility here allows us to plan for when work commitments may hamper attendance/hosting of these events. Details of next event TBC, but this will likely be the last Thursday of March or the 1st Thursday of April depending on when the Computer Museum are able to host us.
