About Us

The Leeds Ethical Hacking Society is a Leeds Beckett SU Society which has over 50 active members. We aim to offer students of all skill levels the ability to learn more about the information security world, the careers available, and an insight into the jobs themselves. During weekly meetings we will cover a topic relating to information security in some capacity, we frequently have guest speakers from industry coming in and presenting talks.

The Committee

The Ethical Hacking Society committee is made up of 6 members who are all current students at Leeds Beckett University. Together we help organise sessions, plan events, and reach out to industry for visits, talks, and career opportunities.
