New York Works: NYCEDC Launches Effort to Create Hub for New York City’s Cybersecurity Industry

‘It’s exciting to be a part of the City’s commitment to creating good jobs and investing in a talent pipeline to meet the needs of cyber employers. We recognize that there is a rich and deep talent pool right in our backyards and that companies looking to do business with the City will be attracted by the wealth of highly qualified academic and training partners seeking to work with employers to meet their skilled workforce needs,” said Barbara Chang, Executive Director, Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development.

“There is no better moment to launch Cyber NYC, bringing the City together with academia and industry to stay on the cutting edge of the discipline while broadening opportunities for New Yorkers to enter our critically important field,” said Geoff Brown, New York City Chief Information Security Officer and Head of NYC Cyber Command. “New York City Cyber Command is dedicated to expanding partnerships and strengthening the talent pipeline in the interest of making the City’s cyber defenses as strong as they can be-which is precisely what this effort will do.”

“Through key investments like the Tech Talent Pipeline initiative, Mayor de Blasio is positioning New York City as the best city for tech,” said Gregg Bishop, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Small Business Services. “Cyber NYC is another example of how we are working with industry leaders to develop the best-equipped tech workforce, supporting new research and development, and helping local tech start-ups flourish.”

“There is no better place to start a cybersecurity company than NYC. Through our investments in Security Scorecard, Hypr, and BigID, we’ve experienced the amazing resources NYC has to offer; top entrepreneurs, academic institutions and innovative corporations. We are thrilled that Mayor de Blasio is uniting all of these forces to establish NYC as a global hub for cybersecurity,” says Ed Sim, founder of boldstart ventures, said Ed Sim, Founder, Boldstart Ventures.

“We are thrilled to be playing a role in building New York City’s resilience and look forward to collaborating on tackling the most significant challenges in cybersecurity,” says Nadav Zafrir, Co-founder and CEO of Team8 and former Commander of Israel Intelligence Unit 8200. “New York City is the epicenter of global business and its commitment to building a strong cybersecurity hub will act as a model for the rest of the world. This is what fueled Team8’s decision to base our US operations there. We believe the NYCEDC initiative is a critical step in securing the city and its tens of millions of residents and visitors and we look forward to being a part of it.”

“In the next few years, there will be millions of unfilled cyber-security jobs. The most important thing we can do to combat the cyber-crime epidemic is to educate the public, and to build an amazing workforce of cyber-security professionals. This initiative by Mayor de Blasio will go a long way to fuel New York City cybersecurity industry and promote innovative new security startups to emerge”, said Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, founder and CEO of SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings.

New York City’s investment in the cybersecurity industry is a key component of Mayor de Blasio’s New York Works plan to create 100,000 good jobs over the next ten years. The plan will pull more New Yorkers into the middle class through City investments in industries with high wages and growth potential, including cyber security, advanced manufacturing, freight, life sciences, and virtual and augmented reality, among others.
