Community conferences are a great low cost way to meet the wider InfoSec community. All the conferences on this page have a Code of Conduct and have tickets at £50 and under.

If your conference doesn't have a code of conduct but would like one you can download our template.

 

Although we only endorse community partners, we can help organise buddies to any of these conferences.
