Talk nights

Format is usually two talks: a primary 1 hour (ish) and, a secondary 30 minutes (ish). Talks start at 19:30, but we have the room from about 18:30 to 23:00.

Speakers Wanted

Typically our programme has a technical talk (~1 hr) and lighter talk (~30 min). Once or twice a year we have a "Lightning Talk" format, with shorter talks up to ~15 minutes, with anyone who wants to speak on the night. The qualifications for speakers are simple, have a subject of interest to fellow technical & InfoSec people. The subject can be on technical or security issues, social interaction with technology, based on the current events, or just something entertaining to our attendees. As a speaker you can be an expert, a student, someone learning a new area, maybe a regular speaker on the conference circuit, but we also love to have new & occasional speakers. We welcome occasional company pitches, to sell or recruit, but to regulate the frequency of these we ask you to buy a round of drinks. Also please discuss with Major Malfunction or Tony beforehand!
