The Cyber House Party is planning for a different festive season


Post Tags

Cyber House Party was born in June 2020, when the full extent of COVID-19 restrictions were starting to sink in and we realized that the usual industry meet-ups at Infosecurity Europe, B-Sides and other events discussing malware, ransomware, along with privacy and security issues would not be possible. The idea was to create a parallel, virtual event to bring the cybersecurity industry together, share war stories, have a bit of fun and raise some money for charity in the process. Our main aims were to: improve the wellbeing of the UK’s cybersecurity community; encourage more people to get into the industry; provide a platform for UK non-profits; and to raise money for worthy causes. We were delighted to get some big industry names along, from security vendors, academia, events, government, the channel and leading CISOs.

What sort of topics were covered in the inaugural event?

Our first even back in June really set the tone for those to follow, in that we managed to attract a huge variety of experts to come along and share their thoughts and experiences with the virtual audience. We had an update from the National Cyber Security Centre, a couple of panel debates on how to kick-start a career in the industry, and more techie stuff like segments on ethical hacking and Room 404: our cyber equivalent of Room 101.
