ShaktiCon

CyberSecurity Conference, Trainings & Competition,Exclusively for Women.

ShaktiCon is an annual global conference focused on inspiring, training, and upskilling women in cybersecurity,

organized by Team Shakti,
India's First & No.1 ranked Women-Only CTF team.

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 pre-conference contest attracted over 1500 participants from 5 continents in December 2020.

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 female focused 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.
