What is the Diversity Careers in Cybersecurity Symposium?

The three-day Diversity Careers in Cybersecurity Symposium will bring together academicians and industry leaders to discuss research and advancements in cyber security.

You will hear from cybersecurity professionals in academia, government and business about the importance and role of cybersecurity. President Obama has stated that cybersecurity and the growing attacks on the nation’s networks is "one of the most serious economic and national security threats our nation faces."

We will provide you with an understanding of the cybersecurity profession and the many pathways to enter this growing and vital field!
