Bridging The Great Minority Cybersecurity Divide
As the demographics of the U.S. population continue to become more diversified, the importance of increasing the participation of women and minorities in the workforce becomes of paramount concern. Since cybersecurity is one of the biggest challenges to our Nation’s national and economic security and we’re facing a major talent shortfall in the industry, strategies to ensure all capable talent regardless of race, ethnicity or sexual orientation feel welcome and included are critical.
ICMCP was launched in 2014 to help bridge the ‘great cyber divide’ that results from the ongoing underrepresentation of minorities and women in the fast-growing field of cyber security. The ICMCP tackles this ‘divide’ with scholarship opportunities, technical training programs, innovative outreach, mentoring and networking programs.
ICMCP Mission & Objectives
To achieve the consistent representation of women and minorities in the cybersecurity industry through programs designed to foster recruitment, inclusion, and retention – one person at a time.
