About CyberSoc

We are the University of York's Cyber Security Society.

The society was started in December 2017 by a group of computer science undergraduates with a passion for cyber security.

Have you ever been curious about the secret lives of hackers? Do you want to learn about how to secure or exploit computers for fun and profit? CyberSoc is the place for you! We’re a dedicated bunch of enthusiasts and learners, with a range of fun activities for beginners and veterans of cyber security alike. Come along to one of our workshops to learn how to properly secure your personal devices, disappear from the internet, or even compete in hacking competitions!
