(ISC)² recently announced an expansion of its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiative through partnerships with several organizations around the world.
“It’s no secret that the cybersecurity industry isn’t nearly as diverse as it should be,” said Dwan Jones, director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at (ISC)². “Our mission at (ISC)² is to not only enable individuals from all backgrounds to enter the cybersecurity industry but also to empower and equip them to excel in their positions and continuously grow in their careers.”
BUiLT (Blacks United in Leading Technology) is one of the DEI partners, and along with (ISC)² will be bringing together diverse cybersecurity professionals for an exciting networking event in Washington, DC. If you live or work in the DC area, you know how valuable your network can be to your career. We are pleased to have Michael Echols, CISSP speak on the importance of diversity within cyber and how to forge your own path.
Mike is the CEO of Max Cybersecurity, LLC, a cyber evangelist, author and international speaker. He spent 17 years in critical infrastructure protection and cybersecurity leadership at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Mike led several White House national cybersecurity and communications engagements, including risk initiatives for the Bush and Obama Administration. He speaks on national resilience and has authored several articles on secure smart technology. Mike has presented for the Canadian Economic Forum, ISACA, and on the PBS cybersecurity special “Roadtrip Nation.”
Join (ISC)² CEO Clar Rosso, as well as (ISC)² members and other cybersecurity professionals to expand your network, learn how you can support the profession, and how the profession can support you.
Space is limited at this free in-person private event, so be sure to save your spot. The networking event will take place Thursday, December 8 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at The Admiral DC.
