Security Mecca

About

Security Mecca was founded in 2011 by a great team of computer specialists who wanted to improve the field of computer security. Unfortunately, most articles on the Internet are geared towards advanced users or programmers exclusively. Security Mecca was developed as the central resource for learning how to secure your computers, network, and code regardless of your skill level. We strive to make this site as user friendly as possible by making navigation easy and providing many high quality articles on a wide range of subjects and for all skill levels.

We are so passionate about spreading the word in making computer systems more secure that we are licensing all of all content under a Creative Commons license as long as works are cited, not changed, and are shared for free.
