Women in CyberSecurity

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and a few minutes of cyber-incident to ruin it.” -Stephane Nappo

We live in a generation where an increasing number of devices used on a regular basis are connected to the internet. IoT has become a major concern for devices that allow intrusion because their purpose was never to ward off attackers. Anything connected to the internet can be used to aid an attack of a sophisticated invasion. All companies have the responsibility to implement controls to protect their own information and educating individuals daily on what it takes to be secure is Priority. It only takes one to open the doorway to a full data breach.

Join us in an engaging discussion with key professional women who have successfully navigated a career in Cybersecurity.

Women in Wireless events are intended for anyone who identifies as female. Men are welcome as guests of women in attendance.  All Wireless Technology Forum events are subject to our event policy as stated here. Additionally, Women in Wireless events are subject to our code of conduct.
