CHCon is a conference for security professionals and hackers in Christchurch, NZ. Training will be run on Thursday 4th November, and presentations on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th. A CTF will be run across both days of the main event that will include cyber, physical, electronic and social challenges across a wide variety of skill levels. This year has some really neat challenges that you won’t want to miss!

All official conference events will be held at The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora at 2 Worcester Blvd, Christchurch Central. Be sure to email us if there’s something in particular you’d like to see happen at the con!

The event is being coordinated by a collaboration of people from the local ISIG and Women in Tech groups. These are two information security and technology groups that meet regularly in Christchurch.
