Day of Shecurity Continues to Bring Women Together to Grow Their Careers in Cybersecurity

Day of Shecurity (DOS) is one of the leading global conferences focused on bringing together women working in or desiring to work in cybersecurity. Going virtual in 2021 has enabled DOS to build a global community and include speakers from around the world, at varying career levels. The goal of DOS is to create an event where women can build a cybersecurity community and feel empowered to start or continue their work in the industry, even if they’re the only woman in their organization.

“All the presenters were so prepared, smart, entertaining and empathetic, I didn’t know this was possible. …the women in my org are so swamped and isolated, and worried for their jobs that we don’t talk to one another…. I didn’t know that there was (sic) different or better [workplace cultures for women] available.”

In response to the ever-growing field of cybersecurity and the need for more talent and to diversify workforces, Day of Shecurity held a second virtual conference on October 28 and 29, 2021 with over 750 people attending. Of the online registrations, 73% were first-time attendees. Attendees had a range of career experiences, both within and outside of cybersecurity. 43% of registrants had ten or more years of general career experience, whereas 62% of registrants identified as not being in cybersecurity yet, or, having less than two years experience in cybersecurity.

“It’s amazing to see such a diverse and strong group of women. I’m used to being surrounded by men. I feel like I found a lot of good resources here.”

The October Day of Shecurity presented three keynotes, including a panel discussion of women Chief Information Security Officers (CISO), 48 speakers, and 41 talks. The sessions fit within the categories of Cybersecurity Careers, Emotional Intelligence and Leadership, Cybersecurity Beyond Engineering, and Technical/Engineer-Focused. 26 sponsors made this event possible with their financial contributions and donations of training and services.
