0xCC is a free training conference for all women in or interested in cyber security.
We hate that we need to specify in 2019 but just to be clear, we define a woman as anyone who identifies partially or wholly as female, anything else isn't our business!
Why free? Because we wholeheartedly believe that a person's financial situation shouldn't be a barrier to a passion for, or a career in, cyber security.
Like last year, we will have a travel grant program which will be announced at a later date.
In 2019, 0xCC held its inaugural event where we had 130 women sign up for one of four two-day courses on varying topics covering everything from web application penetration testing, malware analysis, and reverse engineering, python scripting and automation, to application security.
We were also able to provide six travel grants to students across Australia as well as host a panel discussing the experiences of industry leaders and the contemporary issues that are still pervasive in our industry. 0xCC 2020 is set to have more training tracks!
Our motivation is to help create an environment where people of all identities can concentrate on doing what they love without worrying about prejudices.
Stay tuned, subscribe to our mailing list and get excited for 0xCC 2020!
