Hikvision employee, Matthew Elder, has been awarded a Security Industry Association (SIA) RISE scholarship. Elder will pursue cybersecurity education with the scholarship funds.

Launched by SIA in 2016 to foster career development of young professionals in the security industry, the SIA RISE group membership is open to professionals that are under age 40 or have been in the security industry less than two years and are employees of SIA member companies.

Elder, Hikvision West Florida sales associate, is one of 10 young security professionals to receive a $3,000 scholarship to be used for professional development in marketing and sale, information technology, project management, or security engineering and risk management.



"I will use the funds to take multiple courses including Microsoft's Professional Program in Data Science and the University of Washington's Essentials of Cybersecurity," said Elder.
