CyberSecurity Conference, Trainings & CTF

What is ShaktiCon?

ShaktiCon is a completely free global conference focused on inspiring, training, and upskilling women in cybersecurity. ShaktiCon includes keynote sessions, training, contests, and workshops. Our 3 day conference last year attracted over 5000 participants from over 72 countries, and featured over 35 talks and trainings from the best in industry.

Born out of an understanding that cultural circumstances do not always encourage women to flourish in male dominated fields, ShaktiCon is committed to creating a suitable environment to showcase the range of womens talents in cybersecurity.

By doing this we hope to train a new generation of women to be more actively engaged in the field and enter the cybersecurity workforce. ShaktiCon is all about women role models encouraging young & aspiring women hackers to attain their goals without any fear.
