Frequently Asked Questions
As with anything we’re sure you may have a question or two. That’s is fine and we are here to help. Our goal is alway to have a welcoming, pressure free environment for our members. We don’t ask them for anything other than to show up ready to learn something, add to the group discussion when possible, and spread the word if they enjoyed themselves.
We greatly appreciate any and all assistance. If a full sponsorship is not what you’re looking for but you still would like to support the group by providing a donation in the amount of your choosing.
Thank you in advance and we look forward to hearing from and working with you in the future!

Tyrone is an incredible instructor. Not only did he take time to make us feel welcome, he is well-paced, hard working, and teaches an aspect of Offensive Cyber Security that not many of us have before encountered. I enjoyed the courses I attended, and felt that I would like to learn more from this instructor in the coming years.W
