Cork Institute of Technology has announced a new scholarship funded by Canadian cybersecurity specialist eSentire, in IT management, specialising in security forensics.
CIT president Dr Brendan Murphy welcomed the announcement of the scholarship, which was established and named in memory of eSentire senior executive Yves Beretta. Each year, a sum of €1,500 is awarded to a second year student who will also receive the scholarship for each of their subsequent years of study for his/her degree programme.
“It is great to see eSentire exercising their social responsibility by awarding this scholarship, which will benefit the next generation of our students,” said Dr Murphy.
“The cybersecurity industry is experiencing a critical skills shortage,” said J Paul Haynes, CEO, eSentire. “We applaud CIT for its industry-guided, custom IT, security curriculum. As a leader, we are committed to investing in both our future and that of the cybersecurity industry at large. We’re honoured to support students who have a passion for cybersecurity through the Yves Beretta Memorial Bursary.”
“We are delighted with this eSentire funded scholarship for many reasons, but primarily because it’s focused on supporting students who have a deep interest in a career in the cybersecurity industry,” said Tim Horgan, head of department, Computing.
