IT Security is hard. You have to keep hacking away.

Recent Comments – Thanks Everyone!

The cyber events bring you a perspective from the other side of security by guided hands-on experience. Working in teams gives you an opportunity to share and learn, socialize within Ottawa IT community. Well organized.

I had not gone this deep into a Unix network in 20 years.  Had a great time relearning this material with Tom and my class partners.  Relived the glory days a bit.  Thanks for a great day of fun and challenge.

Open Events

Open Events are open to anyone who wants to improve their IT Security skills, meet others, and have fun!  We get great feedback from sys admins, network admins, web programmers, and IT-Sec consultants and practitioners - of all skill levels.


Corporate/Department Events are for groups who want to have a fun and challenging team-building event.  There's no better, faster, or more effective way to build IT Security skills, than to put the team into a competitive environment.  We can do this on- or off-site.  Great pricing if we combine your team event with others.

Student Events

Student Events started at Algonquin College in June 2012.  Since then, we've done similar events at McGill University for Electrical, Computer and Software engineering students, Carleton U "Learn to Win" program, and La Cité Collégiale.  If you are interested in having an event at your school then let us know.

Groups & Associations

Group and Association Events can be an exciting and engaging addition to your calendar.  A hands-on, fun-filled and challenging activity that your members will really look forward to.  They'll improve their IT Security skills, and earn CPE and other professional credits.
