Deloitte assists The National Cybersecurity Society as part of Deloitte’s 19th annual Impact Day by contributing to their mission of providing cybersecurity education to small businesses.
On Friday, June 8, more than 40 Information Technology security and cybersecurity professionals from Deloitte volunteered with The National Cybersecurity Society (NCSS) as part of Deloitte’s annual nationwide day of service, Impact Day.
The event was hosted by WeWork, White House, who donated office, conference space and refreshments.
“We were very excited to work with the NCSS,” said Joe Costigan, consultant, Deloitte Consulting LLP, who served as the co-site lead for Impact Day. “Assisting them with developing educational content is a great way to use our experience to make an impact that matters,” he continued.
NCSS works with small businesses, victims of cybercrime, nonprofits and businesses of all sizes to help protect businesses from cyber threats and to mitigate the effects of cyber incidents when they occur. Protecting small business against cybersecurity risks is among the key factors to building a strong U.S economy.
“We volunteered alongside NCSS to help them in their efforts to update their educational tools,” said Tia Bent, senior consultant, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and co-site lead.
Impact Day is a celebration of Deloitte’s year-round commitment to local communities. On Impact Day, and throughout the year, Deloitte professionals are committed to making an impact that matters in the communities where they live and work. The goal is to help people, including undervalued groups, reach their full potential, which in turn helps strengthen America’s future workforce and economy.
