Registration URL

The Smart Card and Internet of Things Security Centre (SCC-IoT) will be running its annual open day on 30 August 2017 from 10am-4pm in the Picture Gallery at Royal Holloway, University of London. This is a free exhibition (50:50 mix of industry and student exhibits) that acts as a relaxed networking and exhibition event for its sponsors, supporters and industry lecturers plus honoured guests and students (some will be looking for jobs!). The Open Day includes practical demonstrations of products and technology, some short sound-bite presentations from industry/government/academic experts plus a prestige lecture from a distinguished guest.

This year, the keynote lecture will be given by Ken Munro, Pen Test Partners. The title of his talk is: "The IoT does actually make me WannaCry. The truth behind ransomware, botnets and your household goodies." 

Registration is essential via this Eventbrite link.

Please note: The event is free for sponsors, exhibitors, RHUL staff and students, but other attendees are strongly encouraged to make a donation of £25 per person to help cover costs (including buffet lunch, teas/coffees etc). Payment can be made as follows: 

  • Preferred payment method: via the RHUL online shop
  • Alternatively, on the day by cash or cheques made payable to 'Royal Holloway University of London'
