If you’ve never been to 44CON you’re missing out on an experience like no other. 44CON brings in speakers from around the world to deliver in-depth talks on subjects across the cyber security space. Whether you’ve been in the industry for years or are just starting out, 44CON will have something for you.
We host a strong mix of more accessible, broader talks and in-depth technical workshops. 44CON is the only UK event where you could walk from a talk on global cybersecurity policy through a talk on turning a coffeemaker into a bionic hand with no extra parts, through to an NCSC workshop on defending your own Windows networks. If you’ve never done 3 impossible things before breakfast, this is your opportunity to change that.
Past events have featured a $10,000 cryptocurrency heist CTF, Alternate Reality Games, Soldering, Car hacking, Access Control System hacking, RFID workshops and more. Networking activities have included social events, a careers morning and Yoga. Evening activities have included parties, an evening event hosted by The Many Hats Club, movie nights and more. We also have quiet spaces, chill out areas and a village pub with benches and bean bags.
Tea, Coffee, Refreshments, Breakfast and evening food is also provided in the exhibition area. Our catering is halal, includes vegetarian, vegan and diabetic-friendly options and we can provide Kosher, Coeliac and Gluten free options if we’re informed at the point of purchase. Our well-loved networking break – Gin O’Clock – is stocked with non-alcoholic options, as is the village pub.
Most, but not all talks and some workshops are recorded and shared on our YouTube channel. Videos are announced on our mailing list. Emails go out once every tuesday. If you’re unsure if 44CON is the right event for you, sign up to get a feel for the event.
Our event is governed by a single house rule, Wheaton’s Law. We do not tolerate racism, sexism or anything that infringes upon other peoples’ enjoyment of the event. Your safety is our first priority, our crew includes members of law enforcement.
Our sponsors and exhibitors operate in a strictly no hard sell environment, with no badge scanning, no spam mailing lists and just straight-up honest discussions.
44CON is not suitable for unsupervised under-18s due to the presence of alcohol at the venue.
