Calling all InfoSec Ladies in Manchester! Sharka, Saskia, Gem, Cat, Lin, Shirin, Jade and Yaz (AKA the Board of Buddies) would love to welcome you to the Manchester InfoSec Hoppers!
This group is for women and anyone who identifies as a woman who either already works in, or is interested in working in InfoSec. We’ll be having quarterly meetings, with maybe a few get togethers in between.
We want to open up the world of InfoSec, achieving greater diversity, representation and equality. Through our buddying system, we facilitate women to buddy up with other women at existing meet-ups, events and conferences, creating a safe and friendly space for women in the InfoSec Community.
So, if you already work in InfoSec, or if you just want to get more involved in the community don’t be shy! One of us may be named after a shark, but we promise we don’t bite!
Ladies in Manchester and surrounding area - do you want to start taking part in CTFs but you're not sure where to start? Have you had a bash but would like a bit of extra support?
If the answer is yes then we'd love to see you at C☠️PTURE THE BUNTING - a Saturday morning introduction CTF and a spot of elevenses. There will be cake!
Our Helper Hats from Manchester Grey Hats will be putting on a short non-competitive Capture the Flag with a focus on learning. This will be a friendly session where we can all be n00bs and learn together.
Spaces are limited, so please only reserve if you are intending to come along. We will be having a H☠️pper lunch at Vapiano at 1pm, so if you'd like to socialise rather than CTF please do come along to that, there is a separate R.S.V.P for this.
The InfoSec Hoppers are holding a small CTF on the morning of the 30th March. We thought it would be nice to go for a bit of lunch afterwards.
If you'd like to join us we'll be meeting at Vapiano at 1pm. You don't need to attend the CTF to come to this, all ladies are welcome.
As always, please only reserve a space if you are intending to join us as we need to confirm number with the restaurant.
