What we're about

Join the largest Cyber Security Meetup group in the world to discuss topics from Information Security to the latest vulnerabilities and exploits at the unclassified level. Founded in 2012, D.C. Cyber Security Professionals Group's dedication to providing networking opportunities, informative discussions and educational sessions on all things cyber, has allowed the group to grow over 6,000 members strong while providing a real benefit to the cyber community.

Did you know that there is a battle being fought in Cyber Space? We believe we all, knowingly or unknowingly, participate in this battle every day. With the use of electronic devices increasing in astounding amounts, these devices become weapons for our adversaries as well as individuals and/or organizations with malicious intent. Preparing our members to conquer in that battle is our passion and the inspiration behind the creation or our Meetup group.

Our organizer, Mr. Tyrone E. Wilson is an information security professional with 20 years of experience in information technology and systems configuration, including information systems and network security. Wilson also has extensive knowledge in computer network defense, vulnerability assessments, cyber threat analysis, and incident response. As a former cybersecurity analyst for the United States Army, Wilson developed security structures to ensure American intelligence systems were protected from foreign threats. Currently, Wilson is the Founder and CEO of Cover6 Solutions; which teaches companies and professionals various aspects of information security, penetration testing, and IPv6.

Our Meetup is designed to fit all skill levels so, check out our website and register to become a fellow Cyber Warrior, learn, network and give back to the Community.

Breaking into #Cyber / Lab Setup & Tools

Center For American Progress

It's that time again! After a few months off for some much-needed rest, we're back at it and ready to start the year off right! Join us on Tuesday, January 29th as we discuss how to Break into the Cybersecurity industry and how to set up a lab at home or work to practice using tools to gain valuable hands-on experience. These two "Beginner" sessions are perfect for anyone looking to either transition into the information security field or gain more knowledge on educational resources, mentorship, and job opportunities. This will also be a great opportunity to practice your networking skills :-). For those with a little more experience, we will have a lab set up so you can practice scanning, identifying vulnerabilities with various tools, and if you're up to it ... exploiting what you've found. Not only that, we will have a Capture the Flag server up and running so you can compete as an individual or on a team! It's sure to be lots of fun as well as educational so come on out if you can and spread the word!
