The financial industry is on the front lines of addressing new and emerging cybersecurity threats that have a global impact. FS-ISAC and its members have long recognized that to meet these growing and changing cybersecurity threats, we need to build a diverse workforce.

To confront that gap at an industry level, FS-ISAC launched the Building Cybersecurity Diversity (BCD) Scholarship in 2016 to help introduce women interested in careers in cybersecurity to the financial community. Through the generosity of our members and solutions providers, we awarded 24 scholarships in 2018! Learn more about our 2018 recipients from APEMEA and the US and get your application in today!
