I am so humbled by the progress that we have already made this year to improve and build out our community. I want to take this time to thank all of the volunteers that have made this organization what it is today. There are too many to name and I feel that I would be leaving someone out. We have so many new and exciting events and initiatives this year and they could not have been possible without our volunteers.

Not sure how to help? Please review the newsletter and see what you can bring to the table. I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Current Initiatives

NYU and (ISC)² New Jersey Chapter

The (ISC)² New Jersey Chapter and the New York University Tandon School of Engineering have formed a partnership to further educational and credentialing opportunities for students and the cybersecurity community.

In addition to participating in NYU Tandon events, lectures, career fairs, and other professional development activities, (ISC)² will offer students a full membership completely free giving them access to a network of local industry leaders. As part of the agreement, (ISC)² members can sign up for The NYU Center for Cybersecurity (CCS) mailing list to stay current with research and events featuring leading faculty and industry partners at www.cyber.nyu.edu.

In collaboration with industry partners on the NYU Tandon Advisory Council, NYU Tandon School of Engineering will offer an astounding scholarship to (ISC)² members regardless of their country of residence.

The NYU Cyber Fellowship program is an elite, highly-technical Cybersecurity Master's Degree extends qualifying students with a scholarship that covers 75% of their tuition for the 10-course, part-time program. Additionally, the partnership will present a 15% off tuition to other online or on-campus graduate degree programs. As member-students will also be able to access networking and mentorship events with the (ISC)² New Jersey Chapter.

NYU Tandon has open enrollment for members looking to apply to NYU Cyber Fellows for the Fall or Spring semesters. There is NO GRE required (graduate admission guidelines apply) and they have also streamlined the application process which only takes 15 minutes with a decision in 15 days. Simply:
