We are proud partners of the Vector Technology Institute in Jamaica.

In 2012, there was a devastating earthquake that displaced countless children in Nepal. The government began to place these children in a local orphanage. After meeting the orphanage founder and learning about the story, Iron Vine purchased a clean drinking water system for the property. We also support the volunteers who work there and have donated laptop computers for the children, helping them complete homework and research online.
BSidesCharm is a regional Security B-Sides held in Baltimore, MD. It operates under the umbrella principles of Security B-Sides as a larger community project within information security. The goal of BSides is to offer small, intimate events where all participants can engage each other to help develop connections, friendships, and network with different industry professionals.
