Women of Cybersecurity: Influence and Opportunities
October 25, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us at the Citadel’s Buyer Auditorium as we hear from our invited keynote speaker – Ms. Wanda Jones-Heath – the Principal Cyber Advisor for the Department of the Air Force (comprised of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force). As the Principal Cyber Advisor for the DAF, her duties include synchronizing, coordinating and overseeing the implementation of the DAF Cyber Strategy and advising the Secretary of the Air Force on all cyber programs. She is responsible for overseeing cyberspace recruitment; resourcing and training of cyber mission forces, as well as assessing their readiness; overseeing acquisition; advocate for cyber investments; cybersecurity supply chain risk management; security of information systems and weapon systems.
Ms. Jones-Heath will speak of her path to this field and the advice she would give other women interested in pursuing a career in cybersecurity. We will have plenty of time to network and mingle previous to the event and following.
We thank the Citadel’s DoD Cyber Institute (CDCI) and the Palmetto Roost for sponsoring this event with us.
