Our own VP of Engineering, Jennifer Minella, is hosting the RSA Conference’s first ever minority-focused event. This important event is designed to highlight our industry’s workforce gap and the need for diversity, in all forms, to solve some of our industry’s toughest challenges.
February 13, from 2-5pm, Jennifer will emcee and host the inaugural event with featured speakers like Dr. Uma Gupta, Valerie Plame (Former Covert CIA Operations Officer and Author), Bobbie Stempfley (Director, Cyber Strategy Implementation, The MITRE Corporation) and Allison Miller (Product Manager, Security & Privacy, Google).

One of our most critical national security issues is the negative unemployment we face in our industry, and yet we are regressive when it comes to diversity. We need diversity to solve the problem. This inaugural seminar explores the power—and opportunity—of women in security, as individuals and as part of effective teams. Members of our community come at these realities with different perspectives, reflected by our energizing and provocative seminar sessions, which feature a range of accomplished women at various points in their careers, exploring how they got there and the power of diversity (gender and generational) to really lead us into achieving the ultimate cyber-workforce of the future. This seminar is appropriate for all of our attendees, offering a great start to the week with strong content and networking opportunities.
