TIAA boosts cybersecurity talent strategy with university partnership

TIAA CISO Tim Byrd and company CEO Thasunda Brown Duckett joined other private sector executives and education leaders at the White House this past August to discuss the nation’s need to address cybersecurity threats. Working with NYU Tandon, he created a program that allows any TIAA employee who already has a STEM degree the opportunity to enroll in a cybersecurity master’s degree. The NYU Tandon scholarship and TIAA tuition reimbursements cover nearly all costs.
