Filling the gaps

What role will you play?

We all have a role to play in closing the InfoSec gap and creating opportunities for others. Help us in our mission of creating pathways for anyone who wants to break into the InfoSec industry or advance their skills. By 2033, demand for advanced IT skills will grow by as much as 90% (4). Our goal is to reduce the common prohibitive factors that prevent people from breaking into the industry; because we all do better when we all do better. 





Filling The Gaps in InfoSec Talent

We know that information security is for everyone and there’s a place for everyone. Our mission is to break down the systemic barriers preventing individuals from breaking into the industry or leveling up their skills. Among our highest priorities for fixing what is broken in the information security industry is to address the severe shortage of qualified practitioners and the underrepresentation of diverse individuals in the industry.
