ASU student wins first vCISO Cybersecurity Scholarship — apply for the scholarship’s second round by December 31

Posted by on Nov 10, 2020 in News, Opportunities, Scholarship, Students |

Fractional CISO logoBrennan Iannone, an ASU senior majoring in cybersecurity, is the first recipient of the $500 vCISO Cybersecurity Scholarship from Fractional CISO.

“I want to help defend organizations and people from cyberattacks by protecting hardware, networks, servers and data from potential breaches,” Iannone says. “I am interested in analyzing structural risks, engaging in ethical hacking to test for weaknesses, and researching cyberattacks on a high level to identify patterns and develop solutions. I want to keep the bad guys from taking information of innocent people and using it to ruin their names, credit, and lives.”

This scholarship will support and encourage the development of the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. The success of these students is critical in meeting the rising tide of cybercrime. In 2019, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received over 1,200 incident reports per day, totaling billions of dollars in losses.

Fractional CISO’s vCISO Cybersecurity Scholarship makes $1,000 in annual scholarships available to selected currently enrolled students pursuing cybersecurity degrees full-time in the United States. A $500 scholarship will also be awarded to the winner of the second contest.

To qualify, students must be at least 18 years old and studying cybersecurity as their major or postgraduate area of focus at any accredited undergraduate or graduate institution within the United States.

Learn more about the vCISO Cybersecurity Scholarship and apply with an essay for the second $500 scholarship by Thursday, December 31, 2020.
