- August 3 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM | REEF C "Building World Class Teams" Creativity and innovation, two fundamental building blocks of success, are heightened by diverse teams. But building diverse cybersecurity teams in a market where demand is outstripping supply is increasingly challenging. Terry Morreale and Aaron Vimont of the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) and Joyce Brocaglia, CEO of Alta Associates and founder of the Executive Women’s Forum on Information Security, Risk Management & Privacy, will present research-backed evidence about labor statistics, new staffing strategies and how to recognize and address unconscious biases.
- August 4, 2016 | 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Level 3, Banyan ABCD "Removing Roadblocks to Diversity" Instead of attracting diverse, qualified candidates, many cybersecurity positions and programs may actually inadvertently be precluding women and minorities. The needle just hasn’t moved on the dramatic underrepresentation of women and minorities in the security industry, even as the security talent gap crisis deepens. NCWIT's Terry Morreale will be hosting a discussion table immediatley following this panel.
- NCWIT will also be hosting a booth on Wednesday and Thursday #3 Blackhat Boulevard. Be sure to stop by and chat!
