Welcome aboard!

Infosec.Exchange is a Mastodon instance with an information security focus but plenty of room for other things. It is one of the more popular instances in the fediverse.

Infosec.Exchange is administered by @jerry with help from a team of moderators and some rules.

Infosec.Exchange is hosted on servers in data centers and costs money to run. You can chip in to offset those costs if you wish to.
