Event description


You are invited to join us at - in Auckland, this September - for a study break weekend, where you can 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:

  • Learning to hack
  • Threats & Trust
  • Secure the Cloud
  • Secure Development
  • Web Security
  • Cyber Security Careers


Owen G. Glenn Building
University of Auckland
12 Grafton Road, Auckland

Saturday, 24th September
10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Please plan to arrive by 9:30, so everyone can get checked in, grab some morning tea, and we can start promptly.

Over the course of the day there will be great speakers, along with an interactive Threat Modelling workshop, and a great panel discussion. You will be learning about a wide area of security topics, from some of the best in New Zealand!


Morning tea will be served during check-in (9:15 - 10:00), with coffee, tea, and something savoury. We'll also provide a light lunch and afternoon tea. Tea break and lunch service will include items suitable for vegetarian and gluten-free diets.

The U of A campus will be pretty quiet on the weekend, so don't count on finding many places open for coffee or food.
