Do you recall your early days in the cybersecurity industry and the invaluable support you received from mentors who provided guidance when you didn’t have the answers? It can be easy to overlook, but without their help, you wouldn’t be the accomplished professional you are today. The same goes for those who invested resources in your development; though less well-known, they certainly did impact your future. Now is your chance to pay it forward and help those who are starting their journey in the cybersecurity field!
The UMSA Foundation is seeking donations to fund scholarship awards for students studying cybersecurity and related fields. Your support before, during, and after the Secure 360 Conference can make a significant impact. The goal of this special Secure 360 Conference Fundraising Campaign is to raise $10,000, which will enable us to provide our scholarship recipients with the tools they need for a successful cybersecurity career.
Congratulations to our 2023 Scholarship Recipients!
Our scholarship recipients will receive their awards at the Wednesday, May 10th opening Secure360 session at 7:45 AM in the Mystic showroom. We can’t wait to see you there!
