Watershed, Bristol

The world’s first gameified Cyber conference is coming to Bristol!

We believe Cyber conferences should be fun and engaging - and open to all, regardless of experience. Thus BristolCyberCon was born!

At BristolCyberCon you’ll be incentivised to network with others through fun social engineering & gameification activities, encouraged to participate in the interactive events, and engage with our speakers throughout the day. We’ll also have our comedy duo doing cyber skits through the day (and in the bar afterwards) to keep the day enjoyable.

We’ve 4 interactive workshops, 2 hackathons, a Red Team vs Blue Team panel debate and 15+ inspiring speakers who will be discussing everything from social engineering your way into an office, building cyber diversity in the workplace, using GitOps to deploy software securely, to reverse engineering electric cars!

We’ll also have the region’s most innovative cyber startups for you to meet.

We’re passionate about building a community to bring people with diverse backgrounds and skills into Cyber, and this conference is a way to create links within our rapidly growing cyber community.

Whether it’s how businesses should respond to a cyber attack, learning to pick a lock, or teaming up to win the Hackathon, you’re going to learn new skills and make new friends.

Come join the fun!
