Canadian Women in Cybersecurity 2022

The 2022 Canadian Women in Cybersecurity conference celebrates the diversity of thought, experience, ability, and background. The very real challenge of diversity in the Canadian cybersecurity ecosystem is not limited to hiring practices alone – bringing diversity into our thinking about cybersecurity challenges propels new innovations and techniques that will position Canada as a global leader in cybersecurity.

With more diversity to solve cybersecurity challenges, we bring more creativity and representation to the table and our conference demonstrates exactly how. Going into its third year, this event will highlight the achievements and innovations from various cybersecurity leaders and in Canada who come from diverse educational, technical, social, and personal backgrounds.

From celebrating novel products and tools to learning from leaders who have shattered the glass ceiling and paved the way for others to follow, this conference is geared to a diverse audience. With inspiring keynotes and panels, hands-on technical reviews, and gamified in-person and virtual engagements, another riveting experience awaits.
