Hello everyone! We’re going to be testing the waters and seeing if there’s interest out there for Security Certification Study Groups, and we’ll be pioneering this with a study group dedicated to the first few chapters of the CompTIA Security+ study guide on Wednesday 22nd July at 6:30pm to 8pm (ish). We’ll be going through the chapters together and talking through difficult points, and doing the quizzes in the first 3 chapters of the book.
The study group will be held on our Discord server, make sure to join!
Don’t worry if you don’t have the study guide; come along anyway if you’re interested in this cert - the more the merrier!
We’ll be running additional study groups for other certs going forward too! Make sure to vote in the poll on our Discord, and make sure to vote here for the next study groups: Which Security Certs Are People Interested In Taking?
Make sure to register your interest here if you’ll be attending! :
Will you be attending the Sec+ Study Group?
This went really super well this evening! Thanks so much to everyone who showed up and contributed so much, to both the discussion and the chatty atmosphere.
So a few things have come out of the event which are as follows:
The group will meet twice a week;
- on Monday evenings for a Deep Dive into that weeks chapter (hosted by a different community member each week), and then
- a Quiz Night on Wednesday evenings where we go through questions about the Deep Dive chapter, as well as some generic Sec+ ones.
Anyone is welcome to drop in and out of either session on any week, you don’t have to come to them all. Keep an eye out for our adverts here/Discord/Twitter for times and topics.
There is a sign-up sheet linked in the Study-Group-Chat on Discord if you are able to help host/present a topic area to the group. @ClaireB is amazing and talented, but we want to share the burden around a bit and establish a community.
Finally, we chatted about forensics for one of the questions, and there was some interest in having a hacking afternoon/evening where we all just show up together with drives to image/data to recover and work on it at the same time and show/chat about what we’re doing. I have put it on the Agenda for the next Steering Group meeting so we can get something in the calendar.
Come along to Discord for our Security+ study group - 6.30pm on Monday night - this week is Risk Management. https://discord.gg/m9yxbTE
