About us

Based at Cardiff University, we provide an effective and symbiotic extracurricular interface between students, academics and organisations with interests in the technology space.

CyberSoc is a renowned gold-tier society which began with a focus solely on security however has now rapidly expanded to include many more sectors following its recent merger with the Computer Science society. From 2020/21, CyberSoc seeks to be a ubiquitious component of student life for those studying within the School of Computer Science, with our doors being held wide open for students from other schools.

Do you like the sound of:

  • Being part of a university-wide networking platform to associate with like-minded prospective technology entrants?
  • Receiving talks from industry experts with considerable experience within technology?
  • Participating in capture the flag sessions, showing off your hacking skills (or building on them)?
  • Stepping outside your comfort zone, growing personally and professionally?
  • Opportunities to attend fun alcohlic and non-alcoholic socials organised by our dedicated commiteee?

Join CyberSoc today, and you'll be rubbing shoulders with tremendously passionate students and industry players who are serious about cyber and want to make a difference.

If you're an organisation interested in tapping into our body of members, we would love to hear from you as we place industry engagement very high on our agenda.

Our 2020 vision

University and the world at large will be very different in 2020/21 in comparison to the previous academic year, yet CyberSoc stands ready to adapt and continue to find innovative ways to provide truly leading student engagement to make the university experience better for everybody whilst relishing opportunities to establish symbiotic relationships with wider pools of academics and industry partners - irrespective of whether we are able to meet physically or not.

This year, the CyberSoc committee has been bolstered with a vastly increased pool of passionate and talented students with skills and experience in a plethora of technologies such as cloud computing, cyber security, software engineering, web development, DevOps, consulting, management and more. CyberSoc seeks to bring out the very best in its committee and members, providing both internally-run and industry-backed events and long-term activities to provide an experience to remember, whilst putting organisations in touch with some of the most passionate students available.

We pride ourselves on our highly inclusive vision and deep investment in the development of our committee and members - these are two particular areas we are focusing on this year.

As a Society, we ensure everything we do aligns congruently with our values:

  • To act with honesty and integrity at all times, even when it is much easier to lie or mislead.
  • To act in the best interests of our members, allowing them the outlet to shine.
  • To ensure any contribution is made with due care and attention.
  • To be inclusive and welcoming to people from all backgrounds and experience levels.
  • To think big and be open-minded, embracing even the most outlandish ideas.
