Minneapolis, Minnesota – NetSPI LLC, the leading provider of threat and vulnerability orchestration and security testing, announced today it will partner with University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital as part of a new philanthropic program called “NetSPI Gives.”
“While NetSPI continues to see business growth both nationally and globally, we haven’t forgotten about giving back to our local community,” said Vice President of People Operations, Meghan Hermann.
As a leading high-tech, research-focused cybersecurity company, NetSPI could immediately relate to the groundbreaking research going on at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. In particular, the hospital’s pediatric cancer advancements struck a chord.

To manage all of the company’s philanthropic activities so they can make the biggest impact possible, it decided to create a program called NetSPI Gives. As part of the new program, the company plans to donate time and money as part of a charitable initiative each quarter.
“Our physician-scientists are pursuing new avenues of research to develop powerful alternatives that are even safer and more effective treatments for childhood cancers,” said Nick Engbloom, Director of Community Partnerships for University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. “We are excited to partner with NetSPI’s volunteer and philanthropic efforts, which will play an essential role in elevating the impact on pediatric cancer research here.”
