First National Technology Solutions (FNTS) welcomed visitors of all ages Friday for AIM’s Amazing Tech Race in downtown Omaha. The Amazing Tech Race is an annual tech-driven competition and scavenger hunt hosted by AIM Institute.
This year AIM invited First National Technology Solutions to participate in this exciting event, which gets more people throughout the Omaha community excited about technology. At FNTS, we believe in the importance of building and sustaining a strong tech workforce. Providing engaging learning experiences like the Amazing Tech Race are important due to the increasing demand of tech and STEM jobs across the country. A Global Information Security Workforce study indicates there will be 1.8 million open cybersecurity jobs by 2022 due to a large population of cyber professionals retiring over the next ten years.
FNTS participated in the Amazing Tech Race with a trivia challenge for teams to compete to raise awareness of cybersecurity. A threat map was put on display to show a live view of cyberattacks going on in the world, at any given second. On average, there are more than 4 million cyberattacks worldwide each day and more than 4 thousand ransomware attacks. After the challenge, participants were able to ask FNTS experts about what it is like working at a data center in downtown Omaha. Before heading to their next challenge, teams snapped photos using the hashtags #AIMtechrace2017 and #CoxBusiness.
We’d like to thank all of today’s Amazing Tech Race participants who visited FNTS.
