What we’re about
WHO ARE WE?

Our goal is to get technologists interested in cyber security and share resources about the latest in information security, threat intelligence, and incident response.
JULY 2021 UPDATE:
Our meetups will now be of a hybrid attendance model. When we start to have in-person meetups again, pending a meeting location, the meetups will still be streamed for online attendance.
