Stay aware, stay secure!

About Us

Who We Are

Team Matrix is a group of like minded people dedicated to research and awareness in the area of information security. Information security can only be successful if it is made an integral part of the day-to-day work responsibilities, and it is therefore necessary that everybody (in the organization ) understands the importance of information security. Security awareness and training controls have been identified as a mandatory part of many standards and frameworks. Realizing this need a group of like minded security enthusiasts came together at SCIT, Pune to work for the cause.

Team Matrix was formed in 2009 with the intent of spreading in the area of information security. Late night discussions and planning led to the birth of Team Matrix.  Team Matrix retains its close links with industry, through collaborations with industry security professionals and extensive community participation.  

What We Do

We strive to reduce the likelihood of human error by familiarizing people about security awareness policies and procedures. Also try and reduce the likelihood of a data breach as a result of a human error – organizations can suffer considerable financial losses and reputation damage if confidential data is compromised.

The Means

  • Information Security Awareness Campaigns
  • Information Security Research
  • Process & Risk Study

How we do it

We are a no profit group, with a motto of Share, Learn, Implement & Refine; working for a cause of security awareness. We believe in a concept of the “Psychology & an Ecosystem of Security”. This is what differentiates us from the rest. We focus on the process as well as technical aspects of security. After all security is not a product, not a switch neither it is a process – It’s a lifestyle!

Share

Sharing is Caring. The reason which led to the birth of Team Matrix was the need of a “relevant” knowledge sharing platform for a group of people which later matured and grew much bigger. We try to simulate a real-time information security information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news about what you find interesting in the field of information security.  With numerous subject matter experts pouring in their precious opinion on various aspects of information security from varied industrial domains, Team Matrix is slowly but surely making its way for being one of the leading information security groups.

Learn

Information Security refers to the processes and methodologies which are designed and implemented to protect print, electronic, or any other form of confidential, private and sensitive information or data from unauthorized access, use, misuse, disclosure, destruction, modification, or disruption. The goal is to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information; however, there are some subtle differences between them. These differences lie primarily in the approach to the subject, the methodologies used, and the areas of concentration. Information security is concerned with the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data regardless of the form the data may take: electronic, print, or other forms.  To understand the complex business environments it is important to understand the basics. We as a part of our commitment to information security continuously learn and encourage the fellow members to understand these concepts.

Implement

Implementing is the part where we put the security literature and theories into action.

Refine

We then try and improve the processes and approach to security.

“We’re not here because we’re free. We’re here because we’re not free. There is no escaping reason; no denying purpose. Because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist.  It is purpose that created us. Purpose that connects us. Purpose that pulls us. That guides us. It is purpose that defines us. Purpose that binds us.”
