The lack of diversity in the cyber security talent pool is not a secret. We need as many people as possible to join our ranks but often, and unknowingly, we create a work environment that does not promote diversity and is not attractive to women and minorities.
What have you done or said in the workplace that you may not think was offensive to someone, but may have been? Why is the security environment hostile towards women and minorities in many institutions? What can you do to ensure that there is more diversity in the workforce?
This panel promises to be a lively conversation on race, class and culture in the security workplace and how we need to work together and overcome the security problems our nation faces today.
