We’re Sponsoring the NYU-Poly Women’s Cybersecurity Symposium

NYU-Poly Women's Cybersecurity Symposium

Cyber security is an increasingly complex and vibrant field that requires brilliant and driven people to work on diverse teams. Unfortunately, women are severely underrepresented and we want to change that. Career Discovery in Cyber Security is an NYU-Poly event, created in a collaboration with influential men and women in the industry. This annual symposium helps guide talented and interested women into careers in cyber security. We know that there are challenges for female professionals in male-dominated fields, which is why we want to create an environment where women have the resources they need to excel.

The goal of this symposium is to showcase the variety of industries and career paths in which cyber security professionals can make their mark. Keynote talks, interactive learning sessions, and technical workshops will prepare participants to identify security challenges and acquire the skills to meet them. A mentoring roundtable, female executive panel Q&A session, and networking opportunities allow participants to interact with accomplished women in the field in meaningful ways. These activities will give an extensive, well-rounded look into possible career paths.

Trail of Bits is a strong advocate for women in the cyber security world at all stages of their careers. In the past, we were participants in the CSAW Summer Program for Women, which introduced high school women to the world of cyber security. We are proud of our involvement in this women’s symposium from its earliest planning stages, continue to offer financial support via named scholarships for attendees, and will take part in the post-event mentoring program.

This year’s symposium is Friday and Saturday, October 17-18 in Brooklyn, New York. For more details and registration, visit the website. Follow the symposium on Twitter or Facebook for news and updates.
