African Americans make up only 9% of the cyber workforce. We are on a mission to change that.
We are dedicated to helping Historically Black College and University (HBCU) students find the cybersecurity job of their dreams.
See Yourself in Cyber is a new program launched Fall 2022. Made up of an online mentoring program and in-person events at HBCUs, our mission is to equip students with the necessary life and career navigation skills to help them find, and succeed in, roles in security, privacy, and risk.
Our mentoring program pairs HBCU students with security and privacy professionals to help prepare them for the job search process. Mentors and mentees hold one-on-one meetings focused on resume building, interviewing skills, and empowering students with the confidence they need to navigate their way to a successful career in security and privacy. Anyone can sign up to be a mentor!
On campus events allow students to 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.
