Bridging the Cybersecurity Talent Gap: How Cyversity Empowers Professionals at Every Career Stage

Cyversity Programs

Mentorship Program

Cyversity’s Mentorship Program provides valuable personal and professional development opportunities for Mentors and Mentees alike.

Mentoring is a key component in developing talent and supporting the success of future cybersecurity professionals. That’s why we created the Cyversity Mentorship Program, which fosters meaningful mentoring relationships and includes supplemental initiatives that provide an immersive experience for all participants.


Our mission for this program is to provide our Mentees with an extra hand in making connections, networking, career pathing, improving communication skills, getting insight into cybersecurity roles, and gaining interview and resume-writing skills. This program is designed to cater to the mentees. We seek to provide the support and resources that will act as a stepping stone to success for the traditionally underrepresented communities that we serve.

Our 16-week Session includes:

1:1 matching that aligns the skills of the mentor with the goals of the mentee

A pre-developed curriculum that will help guide each session (optional)

Interactive “Ask Me Anything” sessions with professionals from  across the cybersecurity industry

A platform that encourages open and direct communication, and allows for support from other Mentees and Mentors

Mentorship Testimonials

“The cybersecurity program has had a profound impact on my personal growth and development... I am truly grateful to the program for providing me with the platform and support to enhance my communication abilities. It has been a transformative journey, and I am a far better version of myself than I was just a year ago.”

Training & Skills Development

Cyversity and its network of chapters encourage and support professional development for people of all levels of experience and areas of specialty within cybersecurity.

At the core of what Cyversity is all about is to equip current and aspiring cyber professionals with the knowledge, perspective, and experiences that are necessary within an important and ever-changing profession. This means that Cyversity, its chapters, and its partners must keep their fingers on the pulse of what knowledge and skills are in demand for various roles within cybersecurity. From there, we must find genuine authorities to deliver the educational programming – the content that focuses on cyber itself, the soft skills that are important to career development, and the information that is particularly relevant to unrepresented minorities and women as we together look to change the face of cybersecurity, one person at a time.
