# What is SecTalks Christcurch? SecTalks Christchurch is a non-profit session for technical security talks, and hands-on challenges. A forum to discuss technical (in)security stuff and share our thoughts. SecTalks Christchurch is held every month.
# What happens at a SecTalks Christchurch?
We have a monthly catch-up where someone presents on something interesting (sometimes VERY interesting!). We also have a monthly challenge that everyone gets their hands on. SecTalks Christchurch is community focused, open to beginners and experts alike, and vendor-pitch free. Those that are interested in learning infosec, hacking, computer security, and Capture the Flag challenges (and similar) are encouraged to attend. # How SecTalks is organised?
It is 100% organic voluntary effort. Something that we feel we need to have. People in SecTalks are quite passionate and open for new ideas and discussion. We have people with different backgrounds. # This is super cool, I wanna join SecTalks!
Sure! We always like to get more awesome people in. # But I am new to security and want to learn, can I still join?
SecTalks is always open to anyone who is keen to learn infosec. Those that are interested in learning infosec, hacking, computer security, and Capture the Flag challenges (and similar) are encouraged to attend. We have a few places in each session for newcomers and we will team you up with others with more experience, so you can learn.
