I've decided to start up another security user group. This one is online and for those in information security interested in video games. I've setup a Google Group for communication and coordination purposes. Right now I am surveying the group for the best night to start doing weekly events. It's worth noting that most of the people in the group are PC focused. I'm more than willing to expand the group to include consoles and board games. Reach out if you're interested in starting up those initiatives.
I decided to start the group, because video games are great for blowing off some steam. We in the infosec community need more opportunities to blow off steam. Video games are a great way to do that. As a bonus video games are great way to meet new people in the infosec community. I've had the opportunity to get know a lot of the MiSec community through gaming.
People are playing a variety of games, from single player to multi-player type of games. Free and paid games. We're discussing news related to games. If this sounds interesting to you, hit me up in email (timothy.deblock[at]gmail[dot]com or reach out to me on Twitter (DMs are open).
