Organisers say that the Women in Cybersecurity has been scaled to accommodate a growing audience, in 2024 to hear about the gender pay gap, imposter syndrome, mentorship, and negotiation skills.

Nicole Mills Exhibition Director at Infosecurity Group, said: “Last year’s Women in Cybersecurity event saw another full house as attendees took to the theatre to hear from our keynote and panel of inspiring women. We continue to drive a need for change and showcase the multitude of experience and varied female voices and experts in cybersecurity. This year, promises more motivating discussions and a vision for future generations of women in cyber.”

Stephanie’s diverse expertise and insights into the technological landscape will undoubtedly provide attendees with valuable perspectives on the future of cybersecurity.”
