REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- We are proud to announce our newest scholarship for the International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP). Offering 100 ICMCP Members with 6 months of free access to our online academy, CyberTraining 365 hopes to give those new to cybersecurity the skills they need to further their career, while helping fill the cybersecurity skills-gap. ICMCP will be awarding over $33,000 worth of online cyber security training, from our academy, to their members, over the next two years.
Engaging in diverse ways of thinking gives companies a unique edge. The edge to distinguish from competition, find new solutions to problems and ultimately succeed. CyberTraining 365 has shown an active interest in filling the skills-gap, having launched a veterans scholarship program called CyberVet 365 last year, and working to partner with other organizations (most recently Women in Cyber Security Conference) to continue to leverage underrepresented soft-skills and teach the technical skills needed by cybersecurity experts of the future.
CyberTraining 365's commitment to closing the skills-gap and bolster diversity in the field is allowing them to make valuable partnerships such as that with the International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals. With a diverse team themselves, and trainers from all over the world, CyberTraining 365 strongly believes in the power of diversity and empowering collaboration between all types of people, from all different backgrounds, to make our cyber-world more safe and secure.
"As a non-profit association that is dedicated to the academic and professional success of minority cyber security students and professionals, we are always looking for ways to expand our membership as well as member benefits to continue to build a diverse workforce, contribute to building a sustainable flow of talent and directly supporting other organizations doing the same," says Aric K. Perminter, President at ICMCP. "CyberTraining 365 is a world class organization dedicated to the same vision."
