Women in Cyber: My Journey

Aug 12, 2021 · London, United Kingdom

Our main mission is to address gender inequity within the information and cybersecurity industry. We hope to do this by providing a platform to embody, embrace and empower the leaders of the future. Women working in cybersecurity currently account for about one quarter (24%) of the overall workforce ((ISC)², 2019).

The panel discussion will explore how women and allies have entered the information and cybersecurity arena and flourished within their own space. Join us for a conversation with market-leading experts touching on experiences and individual journeys whilst encompassing anecdotes of challenges and successes as well as the choices which have impacted their career. We’ll also express our thoughts on where we stand in achieving gender balance across the security landscape.

Following this segment, we’ll open the floor where you can join in the conversation for live Q&A’s, before moving onto a virtual networking session.

Join the panel discussion from 1 pm (EST):
