“It is common to see a massive under-representation of women, people of color, and those with visible and hidden disabilities in the infosec and privacy field,” said Elkina. “We know diversity is a topic of discussion when recruiting and hiring infosec and privacy professionals, but there is often little guidance available to those recruiting for these positions. We want to talk about ways to overcome obstacles and this panel has strong ideas on strategies to recruit for diversity.”
