Look back at 2019

CyberThreat 2019 saw us welcome over 350 cyber security practitioners from across the world, host many talks and run an elaborate hackable badge challenge! Another highlight was the capture the flag competition with all teams making it a thriller to the very end. Curious to see what it looked and felt like?

"The whole event was world class"
Graham Bartlett, Senior Technical Leader at Cisco

Event video

"The whole event was world class; I haven't experienced anything like it before at a security event. From the submissions of papers, pre-event communications, rehearsal, right through the whole event including introduction, speakers, CTF, evening reception and even down to the name badges (which could be 'hacked'), I could not fault a single thing."

"It seemed that everyone at this event was very open and friendly, ready to collaborate to solve the CTF, discuss speaker sessions, or generally chat about topics they were passionate about. In many cases these individuals are the world-renowned experts in their field."

"I would encourage anyone with a passion for cyber security to attend this event. Never have I witnessed so many like-minded individuals who are infused with passion, but also so friendly and welcoming. You will be sure to make many new contacts, as well as some new friends."

Graham Bartlett, Senior Technical Leader at Cisco
