Phenomlab.com | A next-generation Technology and Security Community
Latest News and Discussion
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.
Phenomlab.com 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.
Frustrated by a general lack of platforms that allow you to speak freely and engage in meaningful discussion without that dreaded feeling you’re overstepping the mark, or are going to be ripped to pieces by someone else who doesn’t agree with you ? Here, we actively encourage you to use your voice, ask thought provoking questions, and essentially, challenge others (in a positive way of course).
Start your journey now.
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.
Accelerate your career.
The more you learn from seasoned professionals, the faster you can forge your career in information security. We are probably the only network that firmly believes in the ethos of sharing information and knowledge to the point where it becomes possible to nurture the next generation of technology and security professionals. The skills and knowledge gap is wide – let’s close it.
