We at CloudSEK believe that, as a community, we need to support each other to build a sustainable cybersecurity ecosystem. And over the years we have tried to do this by launching Smile While You Learn, our child education program, Earn While You Learn, our undergraduate program that encourages college students to solve real-world cybersecurity problems, and more recently, the XVigil Community, through which we conduct CTFs, promote cybersecurity awareness, and create a space for the community to meet, discuss, and innovate.
As with other sectors, the cybersecurity industry has been affected by the economic slowdown due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. And in an effort to support our cybersecurity colleagues, who have recently lost their jobs and are trying to get back on their feet, we have set up a grant of INR 500,000 that will be distributed among 20 deserving candidates in exchange for a short assignment.
CloudSEK’s COVID Grant assists people in the cybersecurity sector who have lost their jobs due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Selected candidates will have to complete a short assignment as part of the grant. You should consider applying for this grant or nominate someone who could benefit from it, if you/they meet the eligibility criteria listed below:
The application is open from 26 Nov 2020 till 24 Dec 2020.
*Note: Keep your LinkedIn profiles updated so that we can verify your previous role and organization.
