ITSP Magazine’s Chats on the Road to RSAC 2019 | Solving the Cybersecurity Talent Shortage

I was so happy to connect with Selena Templeton from ITSP Magazine as she kicked off their Chats on the Road to RSA Conference 2019.

Here’s their announcement of their kick-off, and a link to our chat!  


Welcome to the first episode of Chats on the Road to RSA Conference 2019 — with guest Karen Worstell, CEO of W Risk Group!

This year, RSA Conference has unveiled their new Diversity and Inclusion Initiative — for example, one of the initiatives is the elimination of all-male panels (or “manels,” as I like to call them) — on the keynote stages.

Kicking off the event that week is “Solving Our Cybersecurity Talent Shortage,” an inaugural seminar from creators Karen Worstell, CEO of W Risk Group and founder of MOJO Maker for Women in Tech, and Elaine Marino, CEO of Equili and founder of LadyCoders. This half-day event is focused on solving the cybersecurity talent shortage – and it’s not going to take place in some back room of a Starbucks ten blocks away – it’s going to be at:

Moscone Center on Monday, March 4, from 8am to 12 noon.

I and my colleagues Marco Ciappelli and Sean Martin had a wonderful conversation with Karen who will tell you all about this exciting new event – who’s involved, what to expect before and during the event, and what she and Elaine are trying to achieve – in this seminar and in the industry.  Listen

This event is for anyone who is interested in hearing actual success stories from these major brands (United Airlines, Intel, Docusign, SalesForce, Cobalt) and especially for the decision-makers in any company.


Be sure to register for this half-day seminar early, as it is going to fill up fast, and make sure you stay for the whole event as you will have the opportunity to speak to the panelists between sessions for networking/information exchange!
