  • I don’t feel as invisible as I did before. The feeling of belonging to a community is really a confidence booster. The future employees of your companies or interdependent companies are very reachable in a conference like this.
  • I really loved this conference, and it was, in my opinion, a life-changing experience that opened all kinds of perspectives and options that I didn’t know existed with this degree.
  • This is one of my favorite conferences to attend and there are definite measurable impacts that can be seen in my professional and academic life and in the lives of my students and peers.
  • The contacts, universities, corporations, government entities you get to interact with in one place it what I enjoyed the most. I have gained several mentors and look forward to next year.

Together Let’s Change the Cybersecurity Workforce Gap
