San Diego Converge Tour Event Creates Double Impact
On November 8th & 9th, fifty working senior security leaders, including local FBI from the San Diego area, laid the groundwork for cyber career paths and the growing need for Computer Science professionals.
Day one of the event took place at Point Loma Nazarine University and focused on collegiate level students who have already expressed interest in the field of cybersecurity. Day two took the Alliance members to Patrick Henry High School to provide insight into future career paths to students.
In partnership with Project Lead the Way, Alliance members keynoted the sheer size of our cyber space and the much-needed industry support to counter bad guys or, “the black hats,” as noted by the FBI.
A 2-hour Capture the Flag workshop and pizza followed, allowing Alliance members to focus on coaching and mentoring students toward developing needed industry skill sets.
Without the continued support of our industry partners, these programs do not exist. Huge thanks to Optiv, RiskIQ, StratumPoint, and Phantom for your dedication in San Diego.
