Our industry has come a long way. Teams of cyber security professionals now sit at the heart of many organisations.

But until recently, cyber security was an obscure and little understood discipline. Young men (they were almost all men) were relegated to labouring away in isolation – disconnected from colleagues and overlooked by management.

Our industry, more than most, understands the impact such isolation can have on the mental health of men. The challenge is even greater now as so many of us work remotely.

That’s why we are proud supporters of Movember.

CyberCX will donate $15 to Movember for every Hackathon ticket purchased.

Together, we can help shine a light on the importance of men’s health, particularly mental health, whilst supporting a range of initiatives that are driving meaningful change in men’s lives.

What to expect from the
2020 CyberCX Annual AppSec Hackathon

Hands-on-learning

This event is tailored for information security managers, cyber security professionals, code developers and students looking to test their skills and identify knowledge gaps. This hands-on cyber security challenge is designed to offer participants practical real-world learning to develop skills.

Real World Scenarios

The challenges involve real websites with simulated traffic, technologies and vulnerabilities that represent actual application behaviours. Unmatched realism delivers long-term benefits that “learning by doing” provides to teams that protect your enterprise.

Virtual Experience

Going beyond the standard approach, we offer virtual guidance to ensure that you and your team make the most out of this training event. Connect virtually with colleagues and peers in this team building opportunity, not to mention the prizes and bragging rights for the winners.
