Our mission is to connect newcomers in technology and security with engaging learning resources, supportive communities, and inspiring industry connections to accelerate the career journey.

Making the transition from non-traditional and non-technical backgrounds into tech and infosec careers can be extremely overwhelming. Many struggle and give up after failed attempts to land a job.

With access to insightful learning resources and supportive industry connections, the career journey is accelerated, making breaking into the industry a reality.

Cybersecurity Central is here to help newcomers find their way, but we need your support. We have more initiatives coming next year, including Second Chances Tech Training, more details coming soon.

Invest in the leaders of tomorrow with a donation today. As a fiscally sponsored 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations are 100% tax deductible.

For the price of a cup of coffee ($5), lunch ($20), or an evening out to dinner ($50), you can make an impact in the lives of future tech and infosec professionals.

All donations go directly back to CC to support our initiatives and overhead costs for website, marketing systems, giveaways, and materials. We do not pay ourselves.
