words from executives.
siberX is a strategic connector of the cybersecurity community. Their team continues to make the cybersecurity space more diverse and is inclusive of multiple skillsets, backgrounds and interests. Often, the cybersecurity space can become an extremely technical, inaccessible community. Through siberX, however, financial officers to HR professionals, young learners to seniors, beginners to experts have all found their role and voice in cybersecurity. Importantly, as a CIO, siberX has been instrumental in paving my journey and approach to cybersecurity and I have interacted with the very best vendors and evaluated new technologies through remarkable immersive experiences. I am proud to be a board member with siberX and will continue to champion their inclusive, diverse #wearecyber narrative!
When I think about siberX only one word comes to mind - ecclectic. By bringing together a world class board of advisors , siberX has found innovative and intriguing methods to engage the cybersecurity community. I've come to appreciate the vendor community through customized case studies and I've got opportunities to speak about cybersecurity to new users and contexts. siberX embodies a return on investment, imagination and innovation. They have my highest recommendation.
From a cybersecurity perspective, siberX embodies community, collaboration and consistency. Whether in person, on-line or hybrid, siberX delivers beyond expectations on production quality and experience. I've come to meet colleagues from across Canada at siberX events and have had fun learning about new ideas and approaches to cybersecurity. I look forward to supporting and encourage everyone to join their community and experience a novel, fun and gamified version of cybersecurity.
siberX has something for everyone - whether you are just beginning in cyber or have years of experiences behind you, they reach an eclectic audience. I've been proud to participate in their events and represent Leading Cyber Ladies - the diversity of thought, experience and energy with siberX is truly phenomenal.
