Although diversity in the c-suite and the boardroom is improving, there is more work to be done. Through its Elevate initiative, FireEye looks to continue to help connect, educate and enable cyber security leaders to assume responsibilities within today’s boards.
During this discussion, Alexa King, FireEye EVP, General Counsel and Board Member, and Coco Brown, the founder and CEO of the accomplished Athena Alliance platform, will share details and key learnings from their own personal journeys. They will highlight some of the opportunities that exist for women in cyber security as they identify and prepare for board level roles, as well as the best ways to go about advocating for others.
Alexa and Coco strongly believe in the power of women as executives in cyber security, and how important it is to have different perspectives on a board. Making connections, bringing opportunities to more women and offering support along the way will help benefit all women leaders in cyber.
