... is the premier information security meetup in New Jersey. We cover a vast array of subjects from the information security spectrum. We are a group of passionate individuals who care about learning & educating others to help them grow within the community. Our practitioners have diverse backgrounds as developers, system administrators, engineers, pentesters, Law Enforcement & Military. We are composed of apprentices, mentors & all levels in-between. If you are interested in getting a foothold in this industry or want to grow your skill set to become a highly talented individual, you've come to the right meetup.
Red Team | Blue Team | Purple Team | We cover it all.
Central NJ Infosec was started in 2016 by individuals who were frustrated that there were no solid Information Security meetups in Central NJ.
Most meetups are either based in NYC, PA, or are in some in-between state of "dead", "unknown status" or in an unreasonable location.
This proved to be the ideal opportunity to fill a necessary gap.
Our goal is to help people who are interested in information security to further themselves in this industry, educate individuals on topics they are interested in, provide mentorship on best practices & grow our member's skills by providing user generated training & content. Our meetups are generally held the second week of the month at the Bridgewater, NJ library.
Meetups are divided into two types: Educational & Social (Meet & Greet). The educational meetups focus on either a pre-selected topic that someone had prepared to present. This can be: a presentation of a tool or technique, information of high value to the audience, a random lightning talk ('hip pocket' session, 'birds of a feather' or 'firetalk').
No pre-requisite knowledge is required to attend or give a talk at the meetup. We only ask that you come with an open mind, ready to learn & contribute. We have a roadmap & goals in mind that are very ambitious. Previous meetups can be found below.
Below is an index of our meetups, newest to oldest. You can view what we covered at a given meetup & if the speaker cleared their slide deck for posting,
it will be available for download on our wiki. On the wiki, you will also find additional information we felt was relevant if you are researching the topic further, or if someone else had questions about the presentation after. In the long term, we plan on recording talks & posting them on YouTube. Any additional information on the talks given can be found in our wiki. You will need to request an account to be created for you for access. You can contact DarkSim905 if you need this access.
