Dallas/Fort Worth Area

About our
Dallas/ Fort Worth

The growth of the cybersecurity talent gap widens and outpaces formal education, organizations hiring strategies, and external pipeline development programs. At the time of convening the DFW chapter of NextGen Cyber Talent, there were 4.1M unfilled cybersecurity jobs worldwide. In the US alone, 715,000 cyber security seats are vacant.

Your Dallas/Fort Worth board has pledged its talents to take an unconventional approach to overcome this challenge. We will meet our diverse community of underserved and underprivileged where they are to help them navigate a career in cybersecurity.

Join us as a benefactor, business sponsor, educational institution, or executive mentor. Please drop us a note to learn how you can contribute to defending today, securing tomorrow, and promoting a diverse cyber community here in DFW.
