  • Dinah Davis originally planned to become a math teacher at the suggestion of her high school guidance counsellor, because that’s what girls who are good at math do right? Through trial and error at two Universities and three work terms she discovered that she loved Cybersecurity and wanted to make it her career.

    Lisa Tetrault also started her university career as a Math major, and by the end of her 1st year pivoted into Computer Science. She learned that being talented in something did not always mean there was a passion.  Since graduating, she held various roles in computer networking and operations, and continued to find passion in the areas of Cybersecurity.  When Operations and Cybersecurity met, Lisa found her love and jumped in head-first.

    Why do you care? Because their stories are not unique. Many women in security have found their way there through trial and error. This talk dives into the current state of women in security and what we need to do as a community to help more women find this amazing career. In addition, you’ll learn how Lisa Tetrault successfully built one of the most diverse security teams ever seen.
