NEW YORK: March 1, 2023 – Octillo, a women-owned cybersecurity, data privacy, and technology-focused law firm, is pleased to announce the launch of their 2023 Octillo Women’s Cybersecurity Scholarship program, administered by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education.
The Octillo Women’s Cybersecurity Scholarship program builds upon one of Octillo’s core missions, to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the cybersecurity industry and support the next generation of female cyber professionals through mentorship and education. One $4,000 scholarship will be awarded to a woman pursuing or planning to pursue a degree focusing on cybersecurity, data protection, or a similar field at the undergraduate or graduate level.
“As the technological, data security, and privacy landscapes evolve, the need for cybersecurity professionals continues to grow,” says Octillo Managing Director, Kara Hilburger. “Women are still very much underrepresented in the cybersecurity and technology industries. Octillo is proud to be on the forefront, helping to break down some of these barriers to help women obtain the resources they need to pursue in this highly specialized field.”
Applications for the 2023 Octillo Women’s Cybersecurity Scholarship open on March 1st and close on May 1st at 11:59 PM ET. The recipient will be notified in June.
