Investing in the Future of Cybersecurity

Fortinet is investing in the talent of the future by supporting Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS). Fortinet will be running a social media promotion during the Operational Technology Symposium 2021 in support of closing the cybersecurity skills gap.

How Can You Contribute?

Beginning August 24 through August 31, Fortinet will put a "virtual dollar" in the jar for every social media post using the event hashtag #FortinetOTSymposium. For every dollar raised, Fortinet will also match the amount. All funds raised will be donated to Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS). 

Let's all help in closing the cybersecurity skills gap together!
