Jen Easterly, Camille Stewart Gloster, Marcus J. Carey to Keynote
Too many attend the large technology conferences and feel like they don’t belong. Girls Hack Village aims to fix that with SquadCon, a new independent three-day cybersecurity conference that will be held in Las Vegas during Hacker Summer Camp, August 10-12, 2023.
SquadCon will feature gender-diverse perspectives of the contributions, experiences, and issues facing the cybersecurity industry’s others.
Girls Hack Village lead sponsors are the international non-profit BlackGirlsHack, an organization dedicated to helping black girls and women break through barriers to advance in careers in information security and cyber security, and Microsoft. Girls Hack Village is now in its second year of providing training, research, and discussions driven by the needs of the cybersecurity industry.
SquadCon includes talks, labs, hands-on workshops, discussions, CTFs, and panels to help advance and increase diversity in cybersecurity. Keynotes include:
Camille Stewart Gloster, Deputy National Cyber Director for Technology & Ecosystem for The White House
Director Jen Easterly, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
Marcus J. Carey, “Tribe of Hackers” Author and Hacker.
“Hackers that are new or from underrepresented communities may not often feel comfortable in existing conferences,” said Tennisha Martin, chair for BlackGirlsHack. “SquadCon brings inspiring stories of professionals at all career levels, including world-class ethical hackers, researchers, academics, and leaders from the private and public sectors.”
Additional sponsors include: Amazon, Google, Adobe, Walmart, Victoria’s Secret, Bay Area CSO Council, and Discernible Communications. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
