Secure. Protect. Infiltrate.

Established in 2017, The University of Melbourne's Information Security Club (UMISC) provides an inclusive community of like-minded students, who are either working towards a career in cybersecurity, or just looking to broaden their skillset. The club was originally found with the intention of building a team for CySCA, an annual Capture The Flag (CTF) competition that pits Australian Universities against each other in a hacking competition. Our members come from various backgrounds including Arts, Science and Commerce, and keeping them in mind, our workshops and events are organised to cater to members of all skill levels.

Our Aims

To promote/ facilitate the discussion of cyber-security pertaining to the modern state of technology and politics

To legally and ethically improve the offensive security skills of the club’s participants in a practical manner

To teach corporate network defence, mitigation and defensive security to members of the club

To participate in CTFs on behalf of the University

To connect with industry professionals such as “Red Team”, “Blue Team”, journalists, engineers, etc. through guest lectures

To prepare club members with the skills and network required to pursue a career in cybersecurity
