In spite of industry attention and recruitment campaigns targeting women, studies forecast a severe skills shortage and low engagement of women that has remained alarmingly stagnant since 2013. This flags broader issues, as we continue to miss opportunities for economic development, prosperity, and more critically, National Security. In global security intelligence, it takes not only technical experts to decompose the motives of a hacktivist or an attack, but an un-expected slew of diverse experts who understand underlying human nature, broad political motives and incentives. This talk will help bolster your security posture by engaging the unrecognized security ninjas.
