About the Alliance

What Makes Us Different?

The Alliance is a cybersecurity focused charitable organization that is run by industry leading executives. Our differentiator is our commitment to uniting the cybersecurity industry to give back to our living and working communities.  We believe that if the various groups and participants in our industry come together to solve our biggest challenges, we will naturally develop the bond and trust necessary to create an invaluable community of trust, information sharing and leadership development.  

At present, we are focused on promoting our industry to the next generation and ensuring that the students, teachers, and schools have the resources and mentorship necessary to foster the cybersecurity professionals of the future. In accomplishing this goal, we are equally committed to improving the strength of our cybersecurity teams through promoting diversity and opening up opportunities in our space for underserved students.

Our History
