For security enthusiasts


As a key part of the security community within UNSW, the UNSW Security Society organises events for you to meet other students interested in cyber security and to learn, develop, and test skills in hacking, cryptography, and general cyber security.

Movie Nights

During movie nights we all come together to watch security themed films for fun, as a chance to get to know other members of the society or to help introduce new members


Sometimes it's fun to just chill out with friends and chat. We'll be running meetups throughout the year where you can come and hang out with society members, introduce your friends to the society, and discuss your hacking endeavours.


We frequently take part in Capture the Flag competitions where we undertake security based challenges to decipher codes, reverse software, break encryption, and similar tasks, competing against other teams from around the world.

We also run our own Capture the Flag competitions throughout the year for society members to participate in.

Workshops and Talks

For those who are new to cyber security or who are keen to broaden your skill set, we run workshops throughout the year to introduce cyber security topics, such as web security, cryptography, and exploiting software.

These workshops are also aim to teach the skills relevant to the Capture the Flag competitions we run and compete in, as well as reviewing challenges from events after we run them.
