IPG CISO Team Holds Workshop on Cyber Security for Year Up Students

Helping to empower young adults to reach their potential through professional career development is something IPG’s Cyber Security team takes seriously. Now for a second year, the team hosted a cyber security workshop for Year Up students. Year Up is a national organization devoted to closing the opportunity divide for low-income young adults through skills development, experience, and support.

This year, the program helped 24 students by focusing on a practical understanding of the impact of cybersecurity on business operations, techniques for securing network communications, and an exploration of the roles within an organization that are either directly or indirectly related to cyber security. Round robin table introductions to CISO managers and a career options panel which included both IPG and agency professionals helped facilitate lively discussion throughout the afternoon.
