Intro

Welcome to the Microsoft Security Meetup Group main website. This is a rather new initiative and effort created by a group of volunteers focused on securing their environment and improving their overall security posture around Microsoft product/services and partners whether on-premise or in the cloud.
We are a talented community of individuals that have an interest in Security. As users and organizations make their journey to the cloud, this group is focused around educating each other on best practices and experiences from the field. Come learn, discuss, and network!
