AFNOM logoAFNOM is the University of Birmingham's monkey-inspired Ethical Hacking Club. Our aim is to share our love of offensive hacking and cyber security with everyone and infect them with our enthusiasm! We do this because understanding threats and how attackers think is the best way to keep computers secure... and it's fun! We represent the University in both international on-line and UK-based on-site Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions.

Follow us on Twitter @UoB_afnom or join our Discord channel to see what we are up to. You can also find more information on our website or email us on if you've got any questions.
