Computing & Security Society

Why Join Us?

  • Skills and opportunities you won't find anywhere else

  • The chance to meet (and socialise!) with people from all 4 faculties with a common interest

  • Travel to some incredible places for Capture-The-Flag events (We win pretty cool stuff at times!)

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.


Key Events

  • Frequent Capture-The-Flag and other competitive activities outside of the university, as well as on-site in the cyber security labs
  • Trips to industry conferences and expos throughout the year (often at discounted rates)
  • Annual Bletchley Park Trip - Easter Approx.
