Authentic training platform makes security fun and relatable in an industry that continues to be plagued by skills shortage

WILMINGTON, Mass., Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Innovation continues its mission to reduce enterprise risk where it is most vulnerable – at the software layer. In conjunction with a security fair and impressive roster of speakers, CMD+CTRL is one of two “Capture the Flag (CTF)” events at the International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) National Conference in Atlanta, GA, designed to attract and develop minority cybersecurity practitioners. Additionally, Security Innovation offers free computer-based training to ICMCP members looking to expand their skills or seek a career in cyber security.

“We are honored to work with ICMCP and other groups to help address a major problem facing most companies today – the inability to hire cybersecurity staff,” said Ed Adams, president and CEO of Security Innovation. “Security Innovation is committed to making the security and technology field approachable for everyone.  ICMCP’s access to a large pool of capable talent coupled with our engaging training platform is a powerful combination towards meeting this goal.”

The CTF runs all day on Wednesday, September 19, 2018.  Players will hack their way through hundreds of vulnerabilities that plague applications today, score points and move up the leaderboard.   Security Innovation experts will be readily available to provide mentorship, answer questions and breakout learning sessions. 

Our ICMCP sponsorship builds upon the company’s mission of developing and encouraging women and minorities in cybersecurity.  The company has been sponsoring similar “hackathon” events for organizations such as Women in Security & Privacy (WISP), Executive Women’s Forum (EWF), Michigan Women in Security & Privacy, BoSTEM, and many others.
