Top Companies Team Up With Federal Agencies and Nonprofit to Launch Cyber Talent Initiative

New program calls on more corporations and federal agencies to help recruit and train the next generation of cyber leaders and provide up to $75,000 in student load assistance.

Washington—April 9, 2019—(Mastercard) In an effort to protect against cyberattacks, Mastercard Corporation, in collaboration with Microsoft, Workday and the nonprofit, nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service, today launched the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative—a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership to recruit the nation’s best minds to defend against global cyberattacks. The launch of this initiative serves as a call to action for leading companies, federal agencies and higher education institutions to come together and help grow the talent pipeline of cybersecurity technologists to protect the nation and support our digital economy. 

With more than 313,000 cybersecurity job openings in the U.S. between September 2017 and August 2018, the talent deficit is significant and the need for a skilled workforce is steadily expanding. The Cybersecurity Talent Initiative is a new program to help reduce the critical talent gap and support the next generation of motivated, mission-driven cybersecurity leaders.
