Chester Students Union Logo

We are a new University of Chester Students’ Union society, with lots of interest.. Be part of this journey!

We are a bunch of likeminded students who have a keen interest in Technology, Cyber Security, and.. Hacking! We learn how to hack ethically for fun and competitions, to learn new skills, and to better protect ourselves.

We are well supported by the University of Chester’s Department of Computer Science, the Faculty of Science and Engineering, the IET, Cybersecurity Challenge UK, and others.

In 2017 we held two successful, well attended Cybersecurity Conferences, as well as entered two teams to compete in a National Cyber Security Competition, involving teams from Universities from across the country.

Our events include:

  • Guest Speakers & Demonstrations
  • Hacking Practices
  • Socials & Dinners
  • Competitions
  • Conferences
  • Programming
  • Digital Forensics
  • Theory Training
  • And much more…

Everybody is welcome! We have experienced members on board, so whether you are a complete Cyber beginner and newbie, or a Cyber ninja, we invite you all.

We meet on Tuesdays evenings and Wednesday day times. None of our events are compulsory, however, the more you put in – the more you can get out. Our Tuesday nights include more theory based events, training sessions, introduction to new skills etc. Our Wednesday events are more of a practical hands on session, testing out what is learnt on the Tuesday nights against vulnerable virtual machines, and sometimes each other!

We have our own slack channel in which we operate from, as well as being part of a more national channel including hacking clubs and teams from across the country!

Some of our top priorites include working with the local community and charities, in order to support events and fundraise; we are always looking for new ideas. We also want to encourage more women in technology, in particular Cybersecurity.

We also work with All About STEMs to provide STEM Embassadors, primarily through the University workshop days, to support schools and college encouraging the participation in STEM subjects at a younger age. This is done via giving talks, workshops, demonstrations, and more. All About STEM Embassadors are DBS background checked before being allowed to work with any children.
