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.

Inspired from the dedication and single-minded devotion of Eklavya the master of archery from Epic Mahabharata, students of SCIT initiated team Eklavya - the mavericks of theatre. Team Eklavya is a forum to put forth students’ opinions for the advocacy of desirable change with an aim to initiate discussion. Although there are silent readers and protestors of national and social issues, rarely they express themselves to find a way out. Team Eklavya functions to make people aware of the various issues such as corporate, social, political, environmental, in the form of street plays, mimes, roadshows, and experimental theatre. Eklavya also organizes peace processions to bring awareness among people regarding issues such as gender sensitization, child labour, female feticide, patriotism, ethics and road safety. Hence Eklavya reflects the Social Responsibility initiative of SCIT started by students with the sole purpose of making young thought leaders of Indian society.
