RANT was originally established by senior end-users, researchers, and cybersecurity experts who desired to have open, transparent discussions on certain subjects. While end-users addressed common community subjects, they could share their experiences, thoughts, and ideas with one another. It has been 16 years since the organization was founded, and since then we have grown our membership by the thousands and staged dozens of physical and digital events that have included thousands of unique perspectives. We have enabled government agencies, businesses, and organizations throughout the globe to tap into the collective wisdom that we have helped everybody else have access to.
