As a byproduct of growing up in a modern society, women develop skills men simply aren't required to.
CARY, N.C. (PRWEB) July 16, 2021
INE, the premier provider of technical training for the IT industry, is excited to support The Diana Initiative as a Diamond Sponsor for the 2021 Virtual Conference themed “Spark a Journey.” INE is committed to championing The Diana Initiative’s mission of diversity and inclusion in Information Security by driving awareness and representation in cybersecurity, particularly in the areas of gender, race, sexuality, skill level, and neurodiversity. In addition to financial contributions, INE will also be actively participating in the Career Village as well as offering prizes through the IoT Village.
As part of INE’s presence at the 2021 virtual conference, INE Cybersecurity Instructor Megan Daudelin will be speaking Saturday, July 17th at 2:00pm PDT on “Soft Skills in a Hard World: Why Your Innate Strengths Should Be a Competitive Advantage.” “Technical skills have long been the focus of training and development programs within cybersecurity. Non-technical skills are all but overlooked,” Daudelin says. “As a byproduct of growing up in a modern society, women develop many skills that men simply aren’t required to. We become naturally better communicators and collaborators, tend to be better at maintaining objectivity, and more easily understand the connections between teams, individuals, and projects.” Daudelin completed both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Digital Forensics at Champlain College, where she also served as an adjunct professor for courses related to cybersecurity and digital forensics. She holds a number of certifications, including GIAC GCIA, SAA and ACE. She is passionate about teaching and sharing her experience as a woman in cybersecurity with others.
