Established in 2014, we run weekly workshops focused around a single topic, involving both a presentation and practical workshop or friendly challenge to test our attendees. Our aim is to introduce students to new and interesting career opportunities, and give them not only the skills to pursue them, but the passion and interest to want to do so.

Weekly Workshop

times and locations

We plan to cover the following areas (Note: This is not an exhaustive list).

  • Network scanning
  • Web application penetration testing
  • Binary exploitation & reverse engineering
  • Password cracking
  • WiFi attacks

We are open to people bringing their own projects and ideas to work on with other members.

We also plan to bring industry experts to give students an inside look into a job in security and networking opportunities.


We participate in various CTFs-type competitions both domestically and internationally.


We are registered as a non-for-profit organisation in Australia.
