Computing & Security Society

Come join us on Discord!

Why Join Us?

  • Learn something new, and that can benefit you "IRL": Improve your general security hygiene, or even learn how to do ethical hacking! 

  • Meet real-life "hackers" and security experts: We have excellent connections with industry and aim to regularly bring in security professionals to deliver workshops and guest talks

  • Travel to some incredible places for Capture-The-Flag competitions and events: Sometimes we even win some cool stuff!

What do we do?

We run weekly sessions with our members on a variety of computing and cyber security skills, delivered by committee members, industry leaders and the occasional guest lecturer.

You can put your newly learned skills to the test in the university labs, where we build our own virtual infrastructure and challenges for you to practice on. We even run termly cyber security and computing competitions (Capture-the-flags AKA CTFs) - complete with prizes.

Outside of the university, we actively work with local businesses, schools and the public to promote awareness of key cyber security issues - it's a great way to give back to the community and we encourage you to be a part of it!

We're not all work though! We also host a series of socials and trips over the course of the year (including national/international competitions) - so if you want to embrace your inner Mr Robot, this is the society for you.

Members of all abilities, backgrounds and disciplines welcome - there's something for everyone.
