Breaking the Glass Ceiling in InfoSec
Date / Time: Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 1:00 PM New York/10:00 AM San Francisco
Overview:

Lean In, says Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in her best-selling 2013 book of the same name, which advises women on how to shatter glass ceilings in tech and other male-dominated industries. But, as any woman in tech will tell you, the challenges today are daunting. And if you can’t relate from your own personal experience, consider what Google owned up to recently in its first-ever public diversity report about the lack of diversity of its own workforce where the breakdown of male to female technical employees is an astonishing 83 percent male, 17 percent female. “We’re not where we want to be,” observed Laszlo Bock, Google’s Senior Vice President, People Operations, in what could easily qualify as the understatement of the year.

In our next episode of Dark Reading Radio, we’ll discuss their challenges and successes in overcoming the gender gap in IT from the vantage point of three women in IT security. Our panel includes Marisa Fagan, community manager at Bugcrowd, Kerstyn Clover, consultant on the SecureState Attack and Defense Team, and Lysa Myers, security researcher for ESET.
