news from Women in Cyber Security (WiCyS)
2016's Women in Cyber Security (WiCyS) event wrapped up Saturday in Dallas, Texas. You'll find our summary of our conference linked below, along with some other perspective on the event. We're preparing special editions of the CyberWire's podcast for airing later this week, so please come back for more. But in the meantime read our coverage here. In addition to the generally acknowledged under representation of women in cyber security careers, the conference's big themes, we think, were the growing recognition that cyber security figures in any enterprise's value proposition, the importance of mentorship in career choice and development, and the point--confirmed by many of the speakers who've reached senior positions in the security industry--a realization that recognizing and pursuing opportunity can be more important than detailed career planning.
