Description

Join us for a #MomsInTech meetup dedicated to introducing you to careers in Information Security.

Why Information Security?
As cyberattacks and data breaches become more common, companies are scrambling to hire IT security professionals who can protect their data and networks. According to Forbes, employers are currently struggling to fill 240,000 open security-related roles, with demand projected to increase as cyber attacks become more prevalent. 
For this meetup, we'll be partnering with Lesbians Who Tech to gather a panel of Information Security experts to explain what they do and how you can break into the industry.

Childcare Stipend
