"However hard we strive to secure, there's always going to be threats to networks and data and enterprise networks are often penetrated. Hence the idea to learn as many preventative measures as we can together. As it is understandable that everyone comes from a diversified starting point but end up focusing with identical set of goals securing networks and data. The gamut of technologies that we work with, the ultimate objective is to get people to a level of skills based platform — where they will be both comfortable and successful in implementing the requisite pieces in a functional environment."
