African Americans make up only 9% of the cyber workforce.
We are on a mission to help HBCU students find the cybersecurity job of their dreams.
The National Cybersecurity Alliance HBCU Career Program equips students with the necessary skills to navigate the security, privacy, and risk job search process to build a pipeline of black professionals to fill the cyber workforce gap.
How it works:
- Mentoring program to pair HBCU students with security and privacy professionals to help prepare them for the job search process. One on one meetings focused on resume building, interview skills, and empowering students with life skills and the confidence they need to navigate their way to a successful career in security and privacy.
- On campus events so that students can interact directly with professionals in the field, including HBCU graduates working in privacy and risk, government representatives, and corporate recruiters. HBCU students will have the unique opportunity to break down the wall between recruiter and candidate by asking questions and having meaningful discussions face to face.
