What we're about

There is a battle being fought in Cyberspace. We all, knowingly or unknowingly, participate in this 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 the creation of our meetup group, The D.C. Cybersecurity Professionals.

Join the country's largest #Cybersecurity Meetup group! Founded in 2012, we discuss the latest #infosec topics and conduct hands-on offensive and defensive sessions at the unclassified level. Our dedication to the community has allowed the group to grow over 7,000 members strong.

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 education in cybersecurity. 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 President of Cover6 Solutions, LLC (https://www.cover6solutions.com/); which teaches companies and professionals various aspects of information security, penetration testing, and IPv6.

Incident Handling & Threat Hunting w/ Security Onion

Online event

This will be a joint event with the ISSA DC National Capital Chapter! We will discuss how to use a free and open-source tool like Security Onion (SO) to provide hands-on experience and increase our knowledge in incident response and threat hunting. This event is for those with minimal experience working with detection alerts, pcap files, and log management. We will learn how to setup Security Onion at home or on an enterprise network and use its features to complete various network defense challenges. Attendees will leave with a higher level of confidence in network defense as well as the ability to crush their next analyst interview. Participants will also receive a booklet of instructions and credentials to a live SO server which will allow them to continue to practice their new-found skills from anywhere in the world.
