DIY D&I with PCI: Do-It-Yourself Cybersecurity Diversity & Inclusion

Date: Thursday, October 28

Presented by: Ed Adams, CEO, Security Innovation Inc. and Director, Cyversity (formerly ICMCP) and Sherron Burgess, SVP, CISO, BCD Travel and VP & Director, Cyversity (formerly ICMCP)

The need for cybersecurity talent has never been greater, yet women and minorities are still dramatically under-represented. This presentation discusses effective workforce planning with a particular focus on solving those two pervasive problems. We show a practical, effective approach to address both. We also share case studies of people who have successfully built diversity and inclusion (D&I) programs in cybersecurity at globally recognized organizations.
