Behind Locked Doors with Jenny Radcliffe

Every day, companies face threats from digital attackers. Bad guys on the internet looking to score. Every day, teams of engineers make sure they’re keeping their company’s digital assets locked down. They work tirelessly to make sure these remote hackers have a hard time finding their way in.

That's where Jenny Radcliffe (@Jenny_Radcliffe), the People Hacker comes in....

Advocating for Hackers with Bugcrowd's Chloé Messdaghi

According to Bugcrowd’s 2019 Inside the Mind of a Hacker Guide, a mere 4% of the global hacking community are women.

Debugging Diversity in Australia's Infosec Community with 0xCC's Alannah Guo

Let’s be honest, the cybersecurity community is still predominantly male. As of March 13, 2019, Cybersecurity Ventures states that women will represent 20 percent of the workforce globally in 2019, still an under represented group.

What gender biases and double standards lie in the way of that goal? Someone tackling this issue is...
