About Us | Cover6 Solutions

A minority-owned SDVOSB: Improving lives & businesses through cybersecurity training, vulnerability & penetration testing, community outreach & staffing.

Our Founder & President, Tyrone E. Wilson, has always had a passion for helping others. His 20+ years of service in the Army has allowed him to serve in some of the most dynamic network security environments in the world. The connections made along the way have allowed Cover6 to become well-established in the tech community and to create a powerful and effective platform to improve lives through education in cyber.

In January of 2012, we organized a meetup group called The D.C. Cyber Security Professionals. Wilson’s passion for educating the masses shined through and the group grew in popularity. Years later, at over 7,500 members, we are proud to be the organizers of the country’s largest #Cybersecurity meetup group. The group allows us to provide community outreach, talent acquisition, and guidance to our members.
