Official Cyber Security Summit Launches Women in Cyber Leadership Events, secures US DOJ & NSA Keynote Speakers & continues to see Record-Breaking Attendance
NEW YORK, NY, USA, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — It is a well-known issue that the cyber security industry has been and continues to be a male-dominated industry. To help combat this, the Official Cyber Security Summit / www.CyberSecuritySummit.com is proud to announce that in just a few weeks they are kicking off a virtual series of Women in Cyber Security Leadership panel discussions across the U.S.
These virtual panels will feature Female C-Suite Executives and Male Executive Allies from renowned companies discussing the latest cyber threats all while addressing the challenges women face in advancing in their careers and how to make more Senior Leadership roles accessible to women. Perhaps the most exciting aspect is an intimate session of Live Question & Answer at the close of the panel between the panelists and the audience. To foster meaningful conversation, attendance is invitation-only for a select group of regional executives and will be shared publicly afterwards.
HP, IBM, Flashpoint, Commvault, iboss, and Cobalt have already signed on to be official hosts for these events. The Official Industry Partner for the series is Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS). The rock star line-up of distinguished female leaders participating on these panels include Marene Allison CISO of Johnson & Johnson, Renee Wynn Former NASA CIO, Teresa Zielinski GE Gas & Power Global CISO, Joanna Burkey CISO of HP, Theresa Masse Cyber Security Advisor, CISA / US DHS, Meredith Harper CISO of Eli Lily & Co, Britney Hommertzheim Director, Cyber Threat Operations for Cardinal Health, Lynn Dohm Executive Director for WiCyS, Kristin Judge CEO – Cybercrime Support Network, Jessica Nye Supervisory Special Agent – FBI and more to be announced.
When asked about the panel series, Bradford Rand, CEO & President of the Official Cyber Security Summit stated, “The biggest challenge our company faces is securing Senior Level Female Cyber Executives to speak as Subject Matter Experts at our events. Our goal for producing this series of Women in Cyber Security Leadership Panels is to encourage, support, and foster more women advancing into Executive Leadership roles.”
Kristin Judge, CEO & President of Cybercrime Support Network, is an active participating speaker at many of the Cyber Security Summit events and will be moderating some of these female leadership panels. In response to the announcement of the launch of these female leadership panels, Judge said “As a national speaker, I understand the value of attending the Official Cyber Security Summit events. As a ‘People’s Choice Ally of the Year Award’ finalist and female CEO, I also understand the need to support women leaders in cybersecurity. Bradford Rand is an advocate who is taking action to bring together top cyber talent and change the look of the industry.”
In addition to securing power-house cyber executives as thought leaders for these women leadership panels, the Official Cyber Security Summit has also confirmed notable experts from various U.S. Government Agencies to speak at the 2021 Official Cyber Security Summit virtual series. Adam Hickey, Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the U.S. Department of Justice, will lead the opening Security Government Keynote at various regional summits including Denver, Seattle/Portland, DC Metro, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, and Houston/San Antonio.
