CodeRGV welcomes a new group of tech enthusiasts to our Academy nights at the Mission CEED building: information and cyber security. The newly established CodeRGV InfoSec group will hold its first Academy night on Thursday, Jan. 5 at Mission CEED.

InfoSec nights will focus on the discussion of technology centered around cyber security, online privacy, information security, threat management and mitigation, as well as cyber attacks. With guest speakers from across the industry as well as local cyber security officials leading the conversation, the InfoSec Academy nights will include a presentation and a hands-on element for understanding how to protect yourself from online threats.

CodeRGV Academy was established three years ago and meets on the first and third Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Mission CEED building, located at 801 N Bryan Road. The academy nights feature guest presentations about specific and wide-ranging technology topics, such as how to use 3D printers nd how to build apps, in addition to hands-on workshops.
