UPS Cyber Team Leader in Supporting Cyber Ed Dies

We would like to take a moment to recognize the good work of Adam Decker, who was a lead cyber intelligence analyst at UPS on its cyber team in Louisville until his recent untimely death at 42 on August 1. He was an early supporter of TALK and our work at local, state, and national levels to bring the cyber engineering pathway to high school students, and summer cyber camps. He was also a Retired United States Army Veteran, serving during the Iraq war, where he earned the Meritorious Service Medal and the Iraq campaign medal.
Without the supportive corporate voices in our community, scaling tech education and talent development will not occur. Adam Decker was an important dedicated voice, working within his organization and our tech council to support student learning in cybersecurity. He will be deeply missed.
