Speaker: Keirsten Williams: Data Security Analyst-PCI Compliance, Conn’s HomePlus
Description: In this webinar, I will give a statistical overview of women in info sec, share tips for becoming (and encouraging other women to become) a security department “founder”, and discuss ways to win executive and financial support.
