In response to anti-black racism and the deaths of countless black people, the country and the world are standing up against systemic racism. Many in the cybersecurity community have been searching for ways to amplify the voices of black and brown practitioners in the national security/foreign policy space. Inspired by the #ShareTheMic campaign on Instagram, Camille Stewart (@CamilleEsq on Twitter) and Lauren Zabierek (@LZXDC on Twitter) have teamed up to launch the #ShareTheMicInCyber Twitter campaign. On June 26, 2020, prominent members of the cybersecurity community spent the day tweeting about Black cybersecurity practitioners. This campaign has started a movement that continues to grow! We're excited to host part two of this campaign on October 23, 2020 in celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
