We embrace a holistic approach of enabling women to not only achieve their professional goals but to fulfill their personal dreams.

Over 400 of the nation’s leading female executives in Information Security, Risk Management, Privacy, and Risk Assurance will assemble for the 14th Annual Executive Women’s Forum (EWF) National Conference to partake in three days of interactive programming at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale, Arizona from October 25-27, 2016. This year’s conference explores the theme of “Balancing Risk and Opportunity: Transforming Cybersecurity, Risk and Privacy Beyond the Enterprise.” The EWF Annual National Conference will feature discussions covering the most complex and critical issues facing companies globally in the fields of Information Security, Risk Management and Privacy, while also providing an exclusive forum for participants to develop and strengthen leadership skills.

“What’s unique about the Executive Women’s Forum is our commitment to engaging, developing and advancing women leaders in our field. We embrace a holistic approach of enabling women to not only achieve their professional goals but to fulfill their personal dreams. The EWF National Conference is the one place that women gather every year to be inspired, energized and encouraged to build relationships with the brightest and most dynamic women in our field,” said Joyce Brocaglia, CEO of Alta Associates and Founder of the EWF.

Over the three days, the conference will feature over 25 sessions including breakouts, live hacks and expert speakers to provide an interactive experience and exposure to new ideas and approaches through round table exercises, incident simulations, panel discussions and working groups.

Lynn Terwoerds, Executive Director of the EWF and 2016 EWF Conference Content Chair, said, "I am especially excited about this year's breakout sessions because we're able to add more variety and depth. For example, we have a live hack session, an e-discovery panel with two circuit court judges, experts from oil & gas industry to talk about critical infrastructure protection as well some hands on sessions around the topic of data analytics and data science. This conference has a fourteen year history of responding to current trends and attendee feedback. There simply is no other conference like it in our industry."
