The 2022 Canadian Women in Cybersecurity conference celebrates the diversity of thought, experience, ability, and background. The very real challenge of diversity in the Canadian cybersecurity ecosystem is not limited to hiring practices alone – bringing diversity into our thinking about cybersecurity challenges propels new innovations and techniques that will position Canada as a global leader in cybersecurity.
With more diversity to solve cybersecurity challenges, we bring more creativity and representation to the table and our conference demonstrates exactly how. Going into its third year, this event will highlight the achievements and innovations from various cybersecurity leaders and in Canada who come from diverse educational, technical, social, and personal backgrounds.
From celebrating novel products and tools to learning from leaders who have shattered the glass ceiling and paved the way for others to follow, this conference is geared to a diverse audience. With inspiring keynotes and panels, hands-on technical reviews, and gamified in-person and virtual engagements, another riveting experience awaits. #WeAreCyber
For our keynote spots, we are looking for talks from high-level information security practitioners. We accept talks that will inspire our audience to do better, look at a problem in a new way, or introduce them to a problem they didn’t know they had. Only presentations that will actually teach the audience something new will be selected. Please explain what new approach, way of thinking, method, or other aspect your presentation will teach the audience.
Our audience is a mix of qualified cybersecurity professionals and aspiring cybersecurity students and/or new professionals. We do encourage inclusivity and will accept any speakers from all aspects of life that can relate to the above content. We are always looking for something new and exciting!
If you are interested in presenting as part of a panel, please pitch us your topic and mention any other members you’d like us to invite as speakers. If you just have a topic you’re passionate about but don’t have other panelists in mind, that’s great! If we like your topic, we’ll recruit other speakers.
Please note that vendor talks will not be selected. If you are interested in presenting your company’s product or service to our audience, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
