Cyversity Announces Partnership with INDY NXT Driver Josh Green

New York – February 22, 2023, Cyversity, a 501(c)3 non-profit association dedicated to the academic and professional success of minority cybersecurity students and professionals, announced today a partnership with American racecar driver Josh Green. Josh will pilot the #3 car with HMD Motorsports in the 2023 INDY NXT by Firestone series.

The INDY NXT by Firestone season commences March 5th at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Pete, FL, in conjunction with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, where the Cyversity logo will be brought to the world’s attention. The full schedule can be found here.

“We are honored to partner with Josh, and our logo to be displayed on his car during his races as part of the INDY NXT by Firestone series,” said Beverly Benson, Executive Director at Cyversity. “This will raise awareness of our cybersecurity workforce diversity and inclusion efforts and our mission of achieving the consistent representation of minority cybersecurity students in the cybersecurity industry.”

“Motorsports is currently one of the fastest expanding sports in the world. With the series becoming exponentially more advertised and fan bases growing by the millions, it’s a privilege to see drivers supporting diversity in the paddock. Equality of opportunity is a simple right that should be afforded to all humans on the planet, yet it hasn’t been in the entirety of our existence. I’m ecstatic to have the Cyversity logo on my car and support their cause for just that reason, equality for all,” said Josh Green

“The auto industry has evolved to a high-tech, sophisticated computer on wheels and is a critical part of our daily lives. It is imperative that we build diverse cultures and perspectives to solve current and future cyber challenges,” said Craig Smith, Senior Director of Information Security and author of The Car Hacker’s Handbook: A Guide for the Penetration Tester.

Josh has had success at every level of the Road to Indy ladder, fighting his way up into INDY NXT in 2023 after honing his skills in the junior rankings. In 2019 he first stepped up to race cars and immediately experienced success. So far, he has won in all but one season of his racing career, showing his prowess in every car he’s driven since. He looks forward to moving up in 2023 and into the future!
