This group is committed to bringing together IT Cyber Security (and related) Professionals looking to expand our knowledge in the expanding and ever changing threats to our IT infrastructure how it affects the places we work and our personal lives.
With threats ranging from simply stealing our personal information, to actually breaching and compromising data integrity, or affecting the availability of our IT resources - this group will be looking to:
- Identify emerging threats
- Learn of methods and technology to mitigate exposure and compromise
- Come up with plans and best practices to overcome known shortcomings in how current IT Security guidelines are implemented that can sometimes increase exposure (for example, writing down complex passwords that change often...)
The main goal here is to help each other in sharing real world experiences and how they were overcome to make sure others are less likely to be affected by them. We learn from mistakes only if we apply the lessons learned.
