About

Independent, Non-Profit Cyber Security Community

Octosec, which was first formed by the students of Ankara University in 2013, gradually incorporated students from different universities. In the following periods, it has become an independent voluntary community from universities with people who is included in the team and has become separated from the team.

Octosec is not a malicious hacker group, it does not attack anyone, it does not harm anyone. Since the first day of its establishment, it has acted in Turkey with the aim of contributing to the increase of security awareness and has worked without any interest in this direction. After that, it will continue to work for the same purpose.

While improving itself with presented projects Octosec is trying to support the development of the country in this area. These projects aim to increase interest in the informatics sector and computer science, in particular cyber security, to support people who want to study / work on this field, and to bring together individuals and communities that serve the same purpose.
