Day of Shecurity - The Path to Security Has Many Branches

Date & Time:
Past Event
Bishop Fox speaking engagements on offensive security research and tools.

How do women make their way into the security field? Security professionals from Bishop Fox will answer that question during this panel. They will each describe how they entered the industry and explain the technical tools, resources, and lessons that helped them along the way. Learn why these women chose to earn certain security certifications over others, what skills proved indispensable, and how they strengthened their technical expertise over time. Each consultant will also review career highlights, such as breaking into data centers and preventing the compromises of sensitive information.

Attendees will walk away with success stories, guidance on what skills can help jump start a career in security, and information about potential career paths not previously considered.

Senior Security Analyst Kate Broussard, Security Associate Candis Orr, and Security Analyst Felicia MacArthur will participate in The Path to Security Has Many Branches: Three Examples of How Women Joined the Security Field Panel, led by Technical Recruiter Kaitlin O'Neil at the Day of Shecurity on Friday, February 22, 2019.
