We're dedicated to cybersecurity that treats the globe as enterprise enriching community expertise through inclusion, collaboration, workforce development and innovation.
The GCC exists to reverse a trend in cybercrime while correcting inequities in talent that cannot be accomplished by any one group, organization, or country. It must be done globally by the cybersecurity industry itself to be sustainable.
The GCC is a global center rooted in local communities. It is proudly made possible by the generosity and vision of the Cortex Innovation Community, a not-for-profit entity residing in a bustling technology district in Saint Louis, Missouri. It was here that our founding community of security champions who represent corporations, organizations and schools large and small, established a Global Center for Cybersecurity that now virtually serves regions and members nationally and internationally with an array of opportunities and services.
"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."
