Learning Security

There is an interesting conversation going on over at the Security Catalysts Community that I wanted to point you to. It's about employees using ICMP tunneling to get around web filters. It is just an example of the many different topics that are discussed in the SCC.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the SCC it is a gathering of passionate security professionals who want to have a place to interact with others who are of like mind. It consist of forums, a silc channel for secure chat and other resources to help you do security better. There are other things in the works also that will be coming down the pike soon. The best part is the interaction that goes on between the members of the community. We have people from all different industries. Financial, educational, government, private industry, the public sector. Our members work in different disciplines in security. Beginner Techs, programmers, researchers, penetration testers, administrators, managers, policy and compliance, and even CIO's, CSO's and CTO's. Many of these men and women have become my friends and I value what I have gained from the community.

I say all of this to invite you to stop by and take a look. You can spend time just looking around or apply for membership. It's all up to you. If you have a passion for security and want to join a group of people who are working towards changing the way we practice security then you are the type of person the SCC wants and the SCC is probably the place for you.
