The Minority Cyber Inclusion Council is hosting an event to reach employers and college students. This event, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology, National Institute for Cybersecurity Education (NIST NICE).
Building more secure and resilient
infrastructure for the future
The 2023 program theme, "Building more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future", highlights the need for employers, employees and future employees to advance an integrated ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development.
The event goal is to energize a cohort of Minority Serving Institutions to build a community of practice around their community with the support of the minority technology industry.
The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) represents the now over 65,000 U.S. minority technology employers. This markets sector represents an aggregated $100 Billion in sales employing over 500,000 people. CEBOT manages the Minority Cyber Inclusion Council. (www.mcicouncil.org)

My CyberSecurity Career
cybersecurity workforce is at the forefront of protecting critical infrastructure and computer networks from attack by foreign nations, criminal groups, hackers, and terrorist organizations.
Today, the cybersecurity community has evolved enough to define a National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework for understanding specialty areas of cybersecurity work and workforce needs.
The Minority Cyber Inclusion Council works to bridge the gap between industry, government and education in order to inform the minority community about the growing employment and training opportunities.
Global Resiliency, Local Responsibility
As technology connects and mobilizes humanity and as diversity becomes our strength the MCI Council stands as a regional catalyst for both change and collaboration.
MCI Council, as a convener for subject matter experts willing to develop networks and systems that amplify resilience and scale, will build sustainable solutions through education, partnerships and research.
The U.S. is becoming more racially and ethnically diverse. MCI Council is positioned to become one of our nation's thought leaders for strategic foresight in the development of emergency response methodologies for economically disadvantaged communities, particularly those developing "megaregions"
Call to Action
Subject Matter Experts
Government and Education must work together to build regional ecosystems through their capacity to convene partnerships and fund meaningful resource based activities.
The ownership of governance and workforce systems that measure outcomes and impact can be sourced and managed through public/private agreements
The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT), through the research activities of CEBOT's Looking Forward Research & Development Directorate brings Senior Fellows and experts from various members to share knowledge and apply their skills.
MCI Council will host events and conduct research to continuously search, cultivate and encourage professionals to explore solutions to workforce and community resource challenges that result from the global cybersecurity workforce shortage.
CEBOT serves the now over 65,000 U.S. minority technology companies and the members and stakeholders the serve. Government, business and community will gain from an increase of workforce diversity and creativity. Human capital improvement in a knowledge economy produces both a direct return on investment (ROI) and social good.
Companies engaged in the solutions developed through the CEBOT will be more competitive.
As the demands of global business, computing, and society continue to revolve around the information, communication and technology (ICT) sector, cybersecurity workload is increasing faster than cybersecurity professionals can meet the demand.
Workforce planning must be expanded to address demand issues and close the workforce gap in a systematic way that includes strategies that include minorities.
What governance structures and feedback approaches do the best workforce planning methodologies use?
Every year in the U.S. there are 128,000 openings for Information Security Analysts, but only 88,000 workers currently employed in those positions – a talent shortfall of 40,000 workers for cybersecurity’s largest job. Click on buttons below to view this new and exciting new tool.
American citizenry and intellect is our greatest national security defense. The Cyber Advisory Council is a design based research initiative to bring our nation's leading Subject Matter Experts together to ensure America's Cyber Workforce System is both inclusive and relevant.
