This was absolutely an amazing event!

I met and networked with so many trailblazers and I’m so grateful. Thank you so much for hosting such a great reception. It was also my first time attending and I’m hoping it won’t be the last!”

What a great experience to be in a room filled with such intelligent, successful women in cybersecurity!

Thank you to The CyberWire for hosting such a great event to celebrate women in this career field ”

In all my years working, I have never been around so many professional women – let alone women in technology/cybersecurity.

I am so grateful to have been there and if there is anything I can do to help foster that community, please let me know!"
