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 over 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.
