The conference entitled Women in Cybersecurity, which will take place at Tallinn University of Technology on 11th of November 2017, will aim to draw attention to the disproportionately smaller amount of women compared to men in the field.

We will discuss the potential of women taking a leading role in addressing the problem. Panelists are invited to speak about the importance of gender equality in this very field, tell about women leadership, career perspectives in Cyber Security and how the environment supports women. They are also invited to share their fields of interests and research as professionals.

Our team would like to introduce these three branches of cybersecurity:
• Governance and NGO’s;
• Business and Technology;
• Academia.

Women studying Cyber Security in Estonia will be invited also and will be able to present their stories the same way the keynotes will be at the Poster Session. The poster of each woman will tell their story of how they came to cybersecurity, what inspires them the most, the difficulties they’ve met and their field of interest. Women presenting their posters will be granted a certificate and are more than welcome to share theri experience in their CVs in future. Participants will be able to interact with the story-tellers during the time allocated.

We believe that the mission for women in IT and Cyber Security is to help illuminate the path for progress.
