We’re founded on the realization that true cybersecurity relies on an ecosystem of connected cross-sector organizations. We also understand that the current state of cyber makes it so that each organization is incentivized to only manage within its own boundaries, creating very real silos.
These silos create gaps like disparities in knowledge, talent, standards, sector practices, infrastructure, and scale. Each poses a common threat to the whole community. And we're out to change this.
By joining together stakeholders and communities that have historically been siloed across the cybersecurity industry or excluded altogether, we believe we can curb the exponential rise in cybercrime. That's why we focus our efforts on Workforce Development, Collaboration, and Innovation.
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.
Check out these smiling faces at our Cybersecurity Minicon 2022! Our career fair was a smash success (or so our members tell us!)
We are unlocking access.
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.
Community members are also connecting more directly with each other, with organizations, with leaders, to create access in a cyber industry that has historically been closed off.
We sit in the heart of St. Louis Innovation.
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. It is only natural that we would work with and support other organizations looking to shake things up and do things a bit differently.
