Thanks for stopping by and welcome to Cyber Pop-up!
I want to share a little bit about our journey and what inspired the launch cyber pop-up. early in my career, i grew to love doing pro-bono cyber security projects for non-profits. I knew that every company needed cyber security, but all did not have access to affordable services. I also knew that completing those projects would help me get the experience i needed to be a better cyber professional. It was a win-win! As i completed the pro-bono projects, i quickly realized this lack of access to affordable and flexible cyber security services didn’t just apply to non-profits. Small and medium-sized businesses were met with similar challenges. I also knew that because of the widening cyber security talent shortage, the problem wasn’t going to disappear soon. It’s a challenge for every business, no matter size.
I became obsessed with addressing these two challenges: the lack of flexible security services and the shortage of cyber talent. And thus, cyber pop-up was born. It’s the ultimate pop-up shop where cyber security experts from a variety of backgrounds come together to deliver on-demand cyber security services to modern day businesses.
Because this idea was birthed through the very spirit of giving back to the community, social impact is in our DNA. As we deliver on our vision [securing the world, one pop-up project at a time] we continue to work with various organizations to open up access to security resources, increase diversity in the industry, and transform the way that the world views cyber security. You can feel good knowing that every project you request is making a difference.
On behalf of our employees and freelancers, hailing from all around the world, thank you for your commitment to keeping your employees, customers, and our world secure.
