Well, it's been a minute. We've been in a bit of flux here and now we are back up and moving with Creating Connections. I hope you all have continued your support of the contributions women bring to the cybersecurity industry and each other. We were sad not to hold our annual women in cybersecurity event in October, and hope that you will join us later this week for an exciting new development by N2K Networks. On Thursday, November 9th at 2pm EST, our team is sharing a panel discussion: "Breaking Through: Securing the advancement of women in cybersecurity."
In the dynamic field of cybersecurity, it’s well established that creating more opportunities for diversity and inclusion is essential for developing a highly skilled workforce. As an industry, we are starting to see the fruits of that labor, but there is a growing need for diverse leadership to nurture continuous innovation and resilience in cybersecurity.
As part of N2K’s 2023 Women in Cyber content series, we’re excited to host an engaging virtual panel discussion featuring insights, experiences, and strategies for advancing more women into leadership roles within the field.
This virtual discussion will explore different areas including:
- Navigating the Cybersecurity Landscape: Gain insights into our guests' career journeys, including mentors, challenges, and success, and how the evolving landscape may present different challenges and opportunities for women.
- Building a Supportive Ecosystem: Explore the importance of mentorship, allyship, and a strong network in propelling women into leadership, and how to create an environment where everyone can thrive.
- Closing the Gender Gap: Delve into actionable strategies and best practices for organizations to promote gender diversity in their cybersecurity leadership teams.
- The Future of Cybersecurity Leadership: Gain a forward-looking perspective on the evolving role of women in shaping the future of cybersecurity.
The panel will be moderated by N2K's President Simone Petrella with panelists: Abisoye Ajayi, Cyber & Analytics Manager at Tulsa Innovation Labs, Koma Gandy, VP, Leadership & Business at Skillsoft, and Lauren Zabierek, Sr. Advisor at CISA.
