World renowned security expert Troy Hunt visit our offices last week to present a two day software security workshop.

We turned our engineering department into a training centre:
Troy arrived and the workshop began:
Troy set a series of hacking challenges during the two days. Here you can see people exploring vulnerabilities in well known websites and identifying ways to protect against them:
He also demonstrated the cutely-named but very scary (from a security perspective) WiFi Pineapple:
After the two day workshop we headed off to Fusion, a quarterly tech meetup in Birmingham. Troy gave his final talk of the week to the audience of 150 techies, investors, testers and others:
Whilst our team enjoyed it, what did our guests think of the workshop?
One attendee said:
Highly informative, enjoyable, and fun. The hospitality was top notch and made a difference. Thanks guys.
Just awesome, great people, good fun, want to come back!
It was great. Providing breakfast was a nice touch. Coffee is essential. Everyone was nice. Troy certainly knows his stuff.
Based on that I'm going to say it was a success!
