A technology and security community designed and built by an experienced CISO, Infosec professional, purple team hacker, and infrastructure expert.

Tired of the growing number of information security communities that appear to be springing up all over the place that either cost the earth to join, or are populated by numerous “god wannabes”, the founder of this platform wanted a centralised hub where information, knowledge, intelligence and so much more could be shared amongst others with the same interests. As he couldn’t find one that fitted the bill ( trust me – he tried all of them….and fell out with a few people along the way because he couldn’t subscribe to their ethics or need for power), he decided to create his own. is the result of this journey. It’s an open community, free to join, free to engage, and free to ask questions about those burning topics you’be been looking for sensible answers to. We aim to become the largest network of information security professionals ! Why not join today and see what this genuine platform can offer you – even if you are simply starting out in your infosec journey, or have been on the train for a while 🙂

Find your voice within the InfoSec community.

Open discussion.

Here, we actively encourage you to use your voice, ask thought provoking questions, and essentially, challenge others (in a positive way of course).

Life is a journey, and always a learning curve. It doesn’t come with manuals, and there’s no way of knowing what it will throw at you during your career. Curve balls, problems, issues – they can all be overcome if someone helps you to move in the right direction. But where do you start ?

The answer ? Here.


This platform actively encourages open discussion. It’s what makes those who want to learn actually achieve their goal by obtaining answers to even the most burning of questions. Nobody can honestly say they can get through anything without feeling the need to challenge or ask questions. Why should you be any different ?


The obvious end goal of contributing to a discussion is to get reasonable feedback and responses. We actively promote as many thoughts to one particular discussion as possible, and even have a ranking system where the recipients of any particular response to their thread can “upvpote” and allow the originator of the response to increase their reputation. Obtaining feedback and engaging with others is of high importance, but sometimes, even the “right” answers aren’t the only ones !


The purpose of this platform is to get a positive experience, and more importantly, a positive result – and not just for the short term. Our goal is to have users return to the platform on a regular basis to ask questions, create new or join existing discussions, and improve the quality of discussions where they can by injecting their own thoughts. There are limits of course, but we see this as very constructive when used in the right manner.

Ultimately, we’re all here for the same reason – to join in active discussions, enjoy the experience, and overall, learn something knew in the process.

Whatever your goal, be part of something groundbreaking.

About this initiative

Phenomlab is a next generation knowledge sharing and discussion platform that aims to eradicate the stigma, hostility, pedantic, and demeaning nature of those before it. We’re all human beings, and by definition, have an interest in something that somebody else struggles to understand – often to the extent of making us adept within a particular arena. Why should that knowledge be restricted to only those who are fortunate enough to have come across it, and not shared with others for mutual benefit ?

This in itself would defeat the true meaning of a community, wouldn’t it ?

How does it work ?

Here at Phenomlab we firmly believe that by discussing a wide range of topics, sharing knowledge, and experiences, you are helping other community members by giving something back.

The idea is that by actively participating in discussions, providing input, insights, and advice, you become an invaluable resource for those looking for assistance, information, and guidance.

How much does it cost ?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. And if that doesn’t help, here’s how we can say the same thing in pretty much every language. Basically, we want you to keep your hard earned cash for something else. This platform is and always will be completely free to use with absolutely no limits. The only cost to you is your time, and for some people, that’s the best way to pay for something. The ethos of this platform is not to generate a profit, but to get people to form a union – to become a community again, and together, make the world (well, try to) a better place.

We do accept donations, but this isn’t mandatory, and we’ll never chase you for any money.

Who should use this ?

Everybody. It’s not just for one particular arena, skillset, or industry. It’s designed for everyone, everything, anything…. you get the idea – if you can learn from it or discuss it, we’re happy to host it. There are limits around what is acceptable, but isn’t that the case for all sites ? Essentially, if it’s clean, honest, and legal, it’s welcome.
