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, LLC; which teaches companies and professionals various aspects of information security, penetration testing, and IPv6.
Wilson is also the organizer of several Cybersecurity Meetup groups, with the most popular being a 3500+ person group based out of Virginia called The D.C. Cyber Security Professionals. Founded in 2012, the group’s dedication to providing networking opportunities, informative discussions and educational sessions on all things cyber, has allowed the group to grow strong while providing a real benefit to the cyber community.
Having grown up in New England, Wilson intends to bring the successful meetup model from D.C. back home. We look forward to everyone's future success! #C6S
