Joining Forces with Other Cybersecurity Focused Nonprofits
LARAMIE – CyberWyoming and the CyberWyoming Alliance are excited to announce their formal membership with Nonprofit Cyber, a coalition of global nonprofit organizations focused on cybersecurity. This partnership signifies a dedication to better serve internet users globally and in Wyoming.
Nonprofit Cyber builds awareness of the work of cybersecurity nonprofits to help align their work to achieve the greatest effect. It is a coalition of implementation-focused cybersecurity nonprofits to collaborate, work together on projects, voluntarily align activities to minimize duplication and increase mutual support, and link the community to key stakeholders with a shared communication channel.
“I think every nonprofit struggles with marketing funds and getting the word out about our valuable programs. For instance, in our participant surveys about how to improve Wyoming’s Cybersecurity Competition for Small Businesses, the number one thing they tell us is we have to do a better job of letting people know about the program. But as a nonprofit, we have to make decisions about whether to put the money into improving the program or marketing the program and sometimes marketing loses. Nonprofit Cyber is a way we can get our programs noticed nationally and collaborate with other nonprofits that have a wider reach,” said Laura Baker, Executive Director of CyberWyoming.
CyberWyoming and the CyberWyoming Alliance have consistently demonstrated their dedication to making Wyoming’s digital landscape safer and more secure. Their involvement with Nonprofit Cyber promises to enhance their impact by connecting them with a national network of like-minded organizations.
Other Nonprofit Cyber members include APWG, the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust, Black Girls Hack, Building Cyber Security, Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange, CIS (Center for Internet Security), CSA (Cloud Security Alliance), Consumer Reports, CREST, Cyber Defence Alliance, Cyber Readiness Institute, Cyber Risk Institute, Cyber Threat Alliance, Cybercrime Support Network, CyberGreen Institute, CyberPeace Institute, FIDO Alliance, Forum of Incident Response & Security Teams, Forge Institute, Global Anti-Scam Alliance, Global Cyber Alliance, Global Resilience Federation, Institute for Security and Technology, Internet Safety Labs, Maritime Safety & Security Alliance, MITRE Engenuity Center for Threat-Informed Defense, National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, National Cybersecurity Alliance, the Nomad Futurist Foundation, Open Cybersecurity Alliance, OpenSecurityTraining2, OWASP Foundation, SAFECode, Secure the Village, the Shadowserver Foundation, #ShareTheMicinCyber, and SightLine Security.
