Founders Voice

Long Voong and Victor Monga, the visionary co-founders of VTF, saw a need in the cybersecurity community for accessible, hands-on education and training. Frustrated by the lack of affordable options and opportunities to practice and make mistakes, they took action and founded VTF.

Driven by passion and purpose, VTF is a non-profit organization owned by the community, where individuals can learn, test and share their knowledge and experiences. At VTF, education and community come first, above all else.
