- Engage very senior thought leaders from industry, government, and academia
- Network with security luminaries and peer practitioners from various industry verticals
- Interact with cutting-edge security vendors
- Attend professional development workshops
- Explore career paths in cybersecurity
- Learn about scholarships and internship opportunities
The Third Annual National Conference of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals will also be launching the second annual, and first of its kind, Cybersecurity Minority of the Year Awards in the following categories:
- Minority-owned Cybersecurity Company of the Year
- Minority CISO of the Year
- Minority Practitioner of the Year
- Minority Educator of the Year Award
