The Global Center for Cybersecurity is a not-for-profit membership collective using a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging lens to foster workforce development, collaboration, and innovation in the Cybersecurity industry.
The GCC aims to reverse the rise in global cybercrime by cultivating a diverse and connected workforce that can effectively fight back. And we must do this collectively across the industry if we want to succeed.
Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging lens calls for creative, authentic, and intentional efforts to build a more accessible cybersecurity industry. From career fairs to topical discussions, we create opportunities for employers and employees to connect.
We create opportunities for leaders to connect and problem solve together. Through expert panels, publications, roundtables, executive training opportunities, we are creating intentional relationships and communities of cyber leaders.
The GCC is a global center rooted in local communities. We were founded at and currently reside in the Cortex Innovation Community, a leading innovation hub in the Midwest. We work with and support other organizations looking to shake things up and do things a bit differently.
"No enterprise can be an island when we share a greater global burden, and it's significantly more costly when we try. The GCC was conceived to more than fill that void and establish a proactive vision for the industry to get ahead of our future threats."
"We've struggled to energize new talent into the industry for a long time, particularly against our own standards of diversity and quality. The Global Center for Cybersecurity was where we realized the value of pooled efforts and have been able to forge a new trajectory."
"What I love about The GCC is that even a smaller organization like mine with critical cybersecurity needs, or a not-for-profit or an academic institution, gets equal access to the full might of the global organization and equal clout in determining its priorities."
