We love any reason to shout out our friends and other nonprofits that are doing the critical work of helping nonprofits become cyber secure, so here are a few awesome nonprofits that we want to highlight!

Secure the Village, Founded by the cybersecurity pioneer Stan Stahl, PhD., is on a mission to educate, support, and advocate for cybersecurity and data privacy. They connect cybersecurity and privacy leaders, creating communities to accelerate progress toward a "secure global village". With a weekly Patch Report, different communities for business leaders, cybersecurity practitioners, and everyday people, and ongoing events like an Annual conference in October, Secure the Village is doing the important work of bringing cybersecurity home.
Starting as a hashtag in 2020 among unrest over ongoing racial disparities, #ShareTheMicInCyber has since grown to become a global movement to connect current and potential practitioners of color to opportunities for advancement and education. Via a partnership with Women in Security & Privacy (WISP), #ShareTheMicInCyber is now offering scholarships to cover training, certification, learning, and professional advancement expenses incurred by Black cyber practitioners that participate in #ShareTheMicInCyber.
All of CSNP's events, programs, and resources are free. They believe that cybersecurity education and career development resources should be accessible to everyone, so they do not include a monthly fee for membership or costs for any events, programs, or resources. CSNP believes that everyone has a right to learn and protect themselves, so they work hard to remove financial barriers.
Thank you community for creating a more secure world together!
