Press Blurb


We are a non profit organization hosting our fifth annual infosec conference committed to helping all those underrepresented in the Information Security industry. Our next conference will be held virtually on July 16 and 17, 2021.

 

We put effort into making our event focus on some of the most-underrepresented and marginalized people, but we want to “elevate, inspire and support”  all underrepresented genders, sexualities, races and cultures in Information Security.

 

The Diana Initiative features two full days of four speaker tracks, fully expanded villages with hands-on workshops, and a women-led Capture the Flag event.

 

This year our theme is “Spark A Journey.” Our discussions will focus on emphasizing the ability in each of us to spark many journeys, and how we can be an inspiration and driving force for increasing representation in cybersecurity – whether gender, race, sexuality, skill level and neurodiversity.
