Welcome To TASK - Toronto Area Security Klatch

General Information

Toronto's Security User Group TASK - Toronto Area Security Klatch, provides a forum for experts to encourage discussion and share expertise in understanding the latest trends and security threats facing computer networks, systems and data.

Our membership includes Information Security practitioners, managers, network administrators, students, and anyone who is interesting in learning more about securing information.

TASK meets the last Wednesday of each month, and membership is free.


Our Values:

  • Shared Expertise - TASK encourages discussion and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and skills among a wide variety of information security experts
