Data breaches, identity theft, ransomware, deep fakes, doxxing. With the pervasiveness of digital platforms and tools in our public, professional, and private lives, concern has intensified about the security of our information, institutions, and online identities. The need for innovation in cybersecurity strategies — from the technical hardware, software, and networks to training the needed workforce — will drive significant investment and attention for the foreseeable future. At the same time, we must ensure that the benefits and protections of cybersecurity are equitably distributed.
How can we engage the most inclusive talent pool to tackle the growing threats, confident that we are mitigating risk, encouraging safe practices, and developing the next generation of cybersecurity professionals?
Featured panelists include Window Snyder (pictured above), Chief Security Officer at Square; Dawn Song, Professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley; and Wendy Nather, Head of Advisory CISOs, Duo Security at Cisco.
