Brooklyn program aims to hack diversity in cybersecurity
The walls are starting to come down for women and minorities in the high-paying, fast-growing field of cybersecurity, and NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn is leading the effort. This summer, 44 area high school students got their foot in the door via the three-week CS4CS (Computer Science for Cybersecurity) program, learning programming, “virtuous” hacking and digital forensics. The group came from a variety of backgrounds, and 80 percent were young women.
