SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, September 7, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The Los Angeles Chapter of the Information Systems Security Information (ISSA-LA) is thrilled to announce another stellar lineup of expert speakers for it’s Annual Women in Security Forum, with top women executives representing information security, privacy, and other technology-oriented fields. It’s all part of the exciting ISSA-LA Security Summit scheduled to take place on Oct 4th-5th at the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica, California. The CISO Forum kicks things into gear on Oct 4th, followed by the Summit Opening Reception, where you can join your friends for cocktails, food, and networking watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. The Women in Security Forum and Summit keynotes and sessions will be happening on Oct 5th.
Clearly the fields of Information Technology and Information Security have had a problem attracting and retaining women professionals. This must change! It is becoming particularly crucial not just to give women in our society the opportunities they deserve, but we must address the current and projected vast shortage of qualified IT and InfoSec professionals. The current men in these fields must be sensitized and welcoming of their female counterparts. ISSA-LA has always been a leader in the community in supporting women and helping to create a welcoming atmosphere for them.
ISSA-LA President and Chair of the Women in Security Forum, Richard Greenberg, states, “While this collection of sessions and topics is geared to women, ISSA-LA is all about a diverse and open community; everyone, regardless of gender and experience level, is encouraged to attend and participate. Registration for the event is open to anyone interested in learning more about information security.”
Come hear Dr. Chenxi Wang, Founder & General Partner of Rain Capital open the event with a dynamic Keynote presentation. Other impressive leaders include Debbie Christofferson, Linda Comerford, Katie Curran, Regine Lawton, Tina Thorstenson, Deidra Diamond, and Sasha Pereira.
One of the best speaker lineups will be at the ISSA Los Angeles Security Summit and Women in Security Forum Oct 5th in Santa Monica, Ca
