Women in Cyber Wales
6th July 2023 || 11:00 – 14:00 BST
Women in Cyber Wales is part of the Cyber Wales Group. The meetings provide a valuable way for women working, or hoping to work, in the cyber industry to meet and support each other. Our next event is taking place in person in Cardiff, with an online (Teams) option for those who aren’t able to join us in person. You don’t have to live or work in Wales to attend.
Taking place at the impressive Sparc building in Cardiff, you’ll hear all about the work of the Cyber Innovation Hub that is based there.
Also joining will be Sophie Kneeshaw, an inspiring speaker who has moved from an arts career into the tech sector, and then have input from the CyberFirst team in Wales, including details on how you can get involved in this important initiative.
Finally, there will be a workshop style discussion around what the Women in Cyber network can and should offer its members, both within Wales and into the UK, as well as looking at what other support and training members might like to see on offer, and we’d really value an open discussion on this topic.
The Cyber Innovation Hub have generously offered to provide lunch for those attending in person, so attendance will be on a first come, first served basis as numbers will be limited at the venue.
Provisional timings: Start 11am (both in-person & online), 12.30pm lunch break, 1pm Skills workshop (online delegates may join as well). 1.30pm close.
Sophie Kneeshaw, Associate Developer, Sky
Dr Yulia Cherdantseva, Senior Lecturer in Cyber Security, Cardiff University
Holly Lidbury, CyberFirst Wales Project Lead
They’ll will also have the brilliant Kevin Dainty with them. Kevin works for Reed, and has set up and runs a highly successful Women in Tech network, connecting women across the whole technology sector and facilitating an excellent mentoring programme.
