Blacks In Cybersecurity, LLC (BIC) activity is based around our Headquarter locations in the Washington, DC. Metro area (BIC@HQ).

BIC Prides itself in being the premier resource in solving the educational disparity of the Cybersecurity field and bringing resources, materials, and infrastructure to our communities.
* In 2020 there will be a paid membership portion of BIC that will allow us to put on more events, host a membership section of the site and more! *
"What is a BIC@Location group ?"
In our organization instead of “chapters” (which imply due-paying members) BIC has “locations”.
The “@Location” notation for BIC has been used to represent locations/groups where events are hosted.
This format makes it easier to move around when groups need to identify immediately where the group is located, differentiate between each group, and decide which best work for them.

Blacks In Cybersecurity, LLC. utilizes the term “Blacks” as a term to identify ALL of the Black People of the Global African Diaspora and Africa as a whole.(“Black” in America is different from “Black in Europe” which is different from the many and proud cultures in continental Africa.)
