Neurodiversity in Cybersecurity Summit 2023:
Attend sessions In-Person after class on Tuesday, April 4
Session 1: Higher Ed: Navigating Continuing Education and Industry Certifications
6:15 pm - 6:50 pm ET
Rob Lee, SANS Fellow
Mick Douglas, Principal Instructor
Sadie Gauthier, SROC Engineer, SANS Institute
Jason Nickola, Associate Instructor
Adam Kosloski, Operations Team Lead, GIAC
Many neurodivergent adults carry trauma from being educated in a school system not designed for them, which often failed to recognize their strengths or provide the conditions necessary to thrive. The idea of voluntarily going “back to school,” whether to pursue an advanced degree or earn industry credentials, can be daunting, but career advancement often depends on it. Our panel includes SANS instructors, authors, courseware engineers, and GIAC certification experts who can share their own strategies for success and suggestions for your own educational path.
Support Systems: Building a Network of Resources and Allies
6:55 pm - 7:30 pm ET
Steph I., Cloud Security Operations Analyst II, Duo Security
Kassandra Pierre, AVP- Global Functions Technology Talent Development, Citi
We all need a little help sometimes, and when those times arise, it’s essential to have an existing support network to turn to. Kassandra and Steph will share their experiences with finding supportive communities, including the WiCyS Neurodiversity Affiliate. They’ll discuss what works for them in finding personal and professional allies and other resources for success.
Accommodations, Awareness, and Allyship at Work! How to Initiate a Foundation of Inclusion
7:45 pm - 8:15 pm ET
Sashy O'Connor, Director of Operations & Employment Specialist, The Grow Group Inc.
Closing Keynote | Neurodivergent Associates are an Asset: A CISO's Perspective on Retention and Inclusion
Jerich Beason, CISO - Commercial Bank, Capital One
Rather than seeing “build a more diverse team” as an item to check off the list, Jerich is in the vanguard of CISOs committed to improving cybersecurity by prioritizing diversity of all types, including neurodiversity. This commitment doesn’t end once employees are hired; getting the right people into the right roles and setting them up for success is an ongoing process. Join us as he shares his keys to success and goals for the future.
