About

Venue: George Watson’s College, Edinburgh

Le Tour Du Hack is ENUSEC’s, Edinburgh Napier University Security Society, annual flagship event. The goal of Le Tour Du Hack is to educate attendees on cybersecurity through engaging, innovative and unique ways. The first Le Tour Du Hack took place in 2017 as a weekend face-to-face CTF competition aimed at students interested in cybersecurity within the Edinburgh area.

Going into its third year, #LTDH19 looks to build upon the success of #LTDH18 through adapting to the feedback gathered from our attendees, sponsors and organising team. After taking this feedback into account, we have decided to change our day 1 from a workshop focus to a more traditional conference format. This means for the first time ever, ENUSEC will be hosting a conference!

The educational ethos which always has underpinned Le Tour will carry over to this conference. There is no better example of this than our planned devotion of our 2nd track to students speakers. Providing the opportunity for fellow students to gain public speaking experience.

The second day will be familiar to those who have attended Le Tour previously, an entirely student led and organised Capture the Flag event, focusing on engaging, practical and technical content. Which has seen hundreds of students coming together from all over the UK to learn and develop their skills, competing over the day in numerous varied & intense challenges.
