The next generation of UK ethical hackers will hear from Europe’s top cyber security experts at Abertay University’s annual Securi-Tay conference.
More than 350 students and professionals will attend the major event at the Dundee campus on 24 February with an array of big names from the online security sphere expected to attend.
The conference will feature talks and workshops from respected speakers as well as members from the organising body Abertay’s Ethical Hacking Society, which is made up of students.
In previous years headline speakers have included representatives from major players such as Cisco and NCC.
A mass delegation from Leeds University will attend this year, keeping up strong links forged between the two institutions.
The conference is aimed at anyone with an interest in hacking and information security and high-level computing expertise is not required.
Organiser William Goard of the Ethical Hacking Society said, 'Securi-Tay promises to provide a fantastic, worthwhile experience for everyone, new to the scene and conference veterans alike.
'It’s a chance for students to meet with top industry professionals in their own environment in a more informal way than going for a job interview.
'The world of online security is growing and Ethical Hacking is a subject that will be directly linked to employment opportunities after graduation.
“As I always say to students, the course is good fun, interesting, a subject area that is always changing and you are likely to get a job at the end of it.'
The list of speakers for Securi-Tay 2017 will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Welcome events for delegates will take place prior to the conference and an ‘after party’ will also be staged.
