Why Attend

The impact of security breaches is no longer confined to large organizations. It’s become pervasive and personal – we all know someone who is a victim of such an attack. The cybersecurity industry must counter the menace by overcoming the stereotypes and attracting talented and result-oriented candidates. Let’s keep the conversation moving forward and celebrate the women who have contributed significantly to the industry’s success.

Join us to engage with the women leaders in cybersecurity and take this opportunity to pay it forward by becoming part of our global initiative to increase women’s participation in the cybersecurity roles.
