The Center for Cyber Safety and Education was named the 2018 Nonprofit Organization of the Year by the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Center is the charitable foundation of (ISC)² and was previously known as the (ISC)² Foundation. They are committed to making the cyber world a safer place for everyone, particularly through their Safe and Secure Online program.
“We are deeply honored to receive this recognition, especially in our local community,” said Patrick Craven, director of the Center. “This award fuels our mission to ingrain cyber
safety education into our culture so that everyone growing up or living in the digital word can protect themselves online.”
The Center has granted over one million dollars in scholarships to women, military veterans, undergraduate and graduate students around the world. There are currently several cybersecurity scholarships offered by (ISC)² and the Center that are open for application.
