Women in Cybersecurity panel: A discussion on hidden figures of cyber skills gap.
On Thursday October 20, 2022, the CyberWire was pleased to host the annual Women in Cybersecurity Reception at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC. This annual event brought together almost 300 people to highlight and celebrate the value and successes of women in the cybersecurity industry. The reception included an industry-led panel discussion called “The Hidden Impact of Cybersecurity’s Talent Gap on the Cyber-Enabled Community,” discussing cyber-enabled professionals who aren’t usually included in conversations around the cybersecurity skills gap. The panel, moderated by Simone Petrella of CyberVista, included perspectives from experts including Davida Gray of MindPoint Group, Jennifer Walsmith of Northrop Grumman, Kyla Guru of Bits N’ Bytes, and Amy Mushahwar from Alston & Bird.
