Envision’s Wilkin Sanchez Awarded Cybersecurity Scholarship
Envision Technology Advisors is thrilled to announce that Wilkin Sanchez, Ground Control Support Specialist, has won a Cyber Honors Academy Scholarship for his performance in the nationwide Cyber FastTrack initiative.
Sanchez is one of three students in Rhode Island, out of more than 13,000 participants, to win this prestigious scholarship. The FastTrack initiative, launched as a part of the Governors Cyber Skills Program, is a three-stage program with hundreds of increasingly difficult cybersecurity challenges modeled after real-world threat scenarios. The first two phases of the program ran during April-August, with only the highest scoring students advancing on. The last phase of the program ends on September 16 – high-performing students in this phase will win additional scholarship funds.
“This program helped me sharpen my cyber skills considerably,” remarked Sanchez. “I was able to think more analytically and outside of the box. At the same time, I was able to explore cybersecurity tools that can help me protect a network environment and understand how malicious actors operate.”
Andy Robinson, Managed Services Leader at Envision, commented on Sanchez’s achievement: “We’re extremely proud of Wilkin for advancing to the final stage of this program. He truly excelled in these challenges – it’s a testament to his passion for learning and dedication to the cybersecurity field. We’re very lucky to have him as a part of our Ground Control team.”
