Training the next generation with the cyber security skills of the future

HackFu is an cyber security event filled with challenges designed around hacking, scripting, tinkering, lock-picking, crypto, and generally thinking outside the box.  Hosted in a secret, yet highly-theatrical environment, security pros and enthusiasts are thrown together in an immersive live storyline that plays out over the course of two days. 

From start to finish, skills will be tested, fun will be had and nothing will be as it seems... Welcome to HackFu.

"The aim of HackFu is to test and improve current cyber security and team-working skills, allow exploration into technical areas outside an individual’s comfort zone and inspire participant teams to come up with creative solutions to difficult problems. This, in the long term aims to cultivate individuals with the right attitude and technical approach to solve the complex issues that face the cyber security industry."Martyn Ruks, Technical Director MWR
