New Zealand Cyber Security Challenge


The Cyber Security Researchers of Waikato (CROW)and Computer Science Student Society (CS3) are organizing a cyber security challenge at the University of Waikato.

When: 17 - 18 September
Where: R Block Labs, University of Waikato
Cost of entrance: Free!



CROW is a research group located in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Waikato. CROW aims to return control of data to users by focusing on research addressing data security from a user-centric perspective.

With the emergence of cloud computing technologies and prevalent mobile device usage, we are witnessing the diminishing effectiveness of traditional cyber security approaches such as perimeter defence, intrusion detection and infrastructure hardening.

To address this, CROW focuses on six major themes: Provenance, User-Centricity, Visualisation, Economics, Hardware, and Tools & Datasets. Together, these six themes enable the return of control of data to users, thereby reducing reliance on third-party vendors or trust relationships commonly found in most cyber security contracts today.
