The world’s first gameified Cyber conference is coming to Bristol!

We believe Cyber conferences should be fun and engaging – and open to all, regardless of experience. Thus BristolCyberCon was born!

At BristolCyberCon you’ll be incentivised to network with others through fun social engineering & gameification activities, encouraged to participate in the interactive events, and engage with our speakers throughout the day. We’ll also have our comedy duo doing cyber skits through the day (and in the bar afterwards) to keep the day enjoyable.

We’ve 4 interactive workshops, 2 hackathons, a Red Team vs Blue Team panel debate and 15+ inspiring speakers who will be discussing everything from social engineering your way into an office, building cyber diversity in the workplace, using GitOps to deploy software securely, to reverse engineering electric cars!

News & events coming up

Workshop Wednesdays start on the 22nd May and we are looking for sponsor companies to support us with pizzas and drinks in return for an opportunity to present and communicate either as an engagement or a recruitment piece. We also have people interested in running workshops within it which we will announce as we firm them up.
