What we're about
Join the country's largest #Cybersecurity Meetup group! Founded in 2012, we discuss the latest tech topics and conduct hands-on offensive and defensive sessions at the unclassified level. We designed our group to be inviting and a fit for all skill levels. Our dedication to the community has allowed the group to grow to over 8,600 members strong.
We all, knowingly or unknowingly, participate in a Cyberspace battle every day. With the use of electronic devices increasing in astounding amounts, these instruments can become weapons for individuals and organizations with malicious intent. Preparing everyone to fight in this battle is our passion and inspiration behind creating our meetup group, The D.C. Cybersecurity Professionals.
Our organizer, Mr. Tyrone E. Wilson, is a passionate information security professional with 24 years of experience in information technology and has a mission to improve as many lives as possible through cybersecurity education. Wilson also has extensive knowledge in computer network defense, vulnerability assessments, cyber threat analysis, and incident response.
Currently, Wilson is the Founder and President of Cover6 Solutions, LLC, which teaches companies and professionals various aspects of information security, penetration testing, and IPv6. Wilson is also on the Review Board of BSides NoVA and Howard University. He has also presented at many of the notable #InfoSec conferences. So, check out our website and register to become a fellow CyberWarrior, learn, network, and give back to the community.
