Diversity in Security Luncheon, September 21, 2023, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PDT

Diversity is critical in cloud security. Security systems must work for all users and a variety of perspectives can help deliver the best solution. When a single culture designs a security solution, often that solution will work well for the users of that background, but it might not work for other communities. Increasing diversity in the cybersecurity community will strengthen our overall security posture. Join us for lunch as we hear from prominent industry insiders who represent a variety of backgrounds and share their experiences as we explore how to make the cloud security industry more inclusive.
