Panel: Developing the Future Cyber Workforce

The tech industry faces a critical need to fill cybersecurity jobs nationwide, and women remain underrepresented in the cybersecurity workforce. Federal agencies have outlined strategies and goals to recruit a more diverse tech workforce to fulfill key initiatives like those around zero trust and open-source software security. This panel will outline how they are preparing for these workforce challenges and the role women will play in the cyber workforce of the future.

Flywheel Awards Presentation

We'll present the Flywheel Awards recognizing leaders and their work in federal government.

This momentum is what fuels the constant need for transformers to innovate in federal technology and communicate those strategies across the industry.
