The International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) is a non-profit association that is dedicated to the academic and professional success of minority cyber security students and professionals. The ICMCP offers our members educational/technical scholarships, technical training, mentoring opportunities, professional development services and vast networking resources.
ICMCP was launched in 2014 to help bridge the ‘great cyber divide’ that results from the ongoing under-representation of minorities in the fast-growing field of cyber security. The ICMCP will tackle this ‘divide’ with scholarship opportunities, technical training programs, innovative outreach, mentoring and networking programs. The ICMCP will target minority cyber security professionals worldwide and promote academic and technical excellence in our tradecraft. Our management team consists of the board of directors, a larger advisory board and officers of ICMCP, working closely with the executive director. In addition, our regional chapters will be instrumental in advising our executive director and promulgating our mission globally.
Bridging The Great Minority Cybersecurity Divide
Cybersecurity has been identified as one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face worldwide. Sadly, however, there is a global underrepresentation of minorities in the fast-growing discipline of cyber security. As a cyber security professional, or an aspiring cyber security professional, we must continue growing professionally and personally in order to stay abreast of the latest developments in what has become one of the most dynamic and constantly evolving tradecraft. ICMCP Programs are focused on helping to create a talented and innovative pool of citizens specializing in securing global cyber infrastructures.
