Information security can only be successful if it is made an integral part of the day-to-day work responsibilities, and it is therefore necessary that everybody in the organization understands the importance of information security. Security awareness and training controls have been identified as a mandatory part of many standards and frameworks. Realizing this need a group of like minded security enthusiasts came together at SCIT, Pune to work for the cause.
Late night discussions and planning led to the birth of Team M@tr!x. M@tr1x is an effort to educate about Information Security . We are a no profit group, with a motto of Share, Learn, Implement & Refine working for a cause of security awareness. We believe in a concept of the “Psychology & an Ecosystem of Security”. This is what differentiates us from the rest. We focus on the process as well as technical aspects of security. After all your security is as good as your weakest link.
We conduct weekly meetings to discuss the recent developments and trends in security. We have a significant web presence on social networks where we share and discuss various aspects of information security. We have collaborated with various security communities to extend our reach and realize our dream of making this cyber space a better place to live – trying to manage risk at every step.
The Cyber Security Awareness Month is our flagship event, where we celebrate the month of October as a month of Security Awareness. We believe that security is an integral part of everyday life, so why only October? The answer may be seen like this, it’s our festival, where we reiterate our commitment for security awareness and send a message to the bad guys out there. We have united for a cause and the word is SECURITY.

A few Great Moments
Eklavya Gyaan Bindaas (EGB)
Through EGB we plan to write boldly about various issues happening in the corporate or social world. We have launched EGB and the location is near the mess notice board for public access. We will take EGB as a platform to communicate to the outside world. Our first article talked about Mr Narayan Murthy's statement on Satyam.
A new concept in pipeline is called Open Source Nautanki where public opinion would be asked for a new theme for a play which if appropriate would be directed and enacted by Eklavyans...
"We will be the change we want to see."
With each passing day, it is becoming increasingly clear that the strategy of environmental exploitation that characterized the 20th century is reaching the end of its natural life. We are in the early stages of a transition from an attitude that, 'treats the Earth like a business in liquidation' to one that is committed to preserving the planet's 'natural capital.' The principle underlying this shift is really quite simple: if we want a high quality of life for ourselves and future generations - a high quality of life in all its senses - we cannot continue to degrade the quality of the natural systems of which we are a part.
We at Symbiosis Center for Information Technology have realized that to see change we have to initiate the change. We must do what we conceive to be right and not bother our heads or burden our souls with whether we'll be successful. Because if we don't do the right thing, we'll do the wrong thing and we'll be part of the disease and not part of the cure. "We will be the change we want to see" was the thought that spurred the young students at Symbiosis Centre for Information Technology (SCIT) to think about their duties for Mother Earth and thus was born the Institute Social Responsibility (ISR) committee. Creating environmental awareness and promoting environment friendliness among people was the main ingredient that went into building ISR committee by the MBA 2009 - 11 batches. ISR aims to improve the social awareness among bright minds that also are academic all-rounder. In spite of their hectic schedule these MBA aspirants have a strong determination to resolve and give back to the society thus bringing in enthusiastic participation in ISR. It contributes towards the betterment of lesser privileged children and to their upliftment by organizing fund raisers.
