Women in Cyber Luncheon & Keynote

Louise McEvoy has been empowering women in cyber for the past 15 years. She likes taking risks outside of work – mountain biking on weekends and climbing the world’s highest mountains on vacations. Louise’s personal life goal was to climb Everest and she realized that goal when she summited on May 16, 2018.
Louise is dedicated to helping others reach their “summit” and has spoken to many groups and organizations on that topic, knowing that sometimes the hardest things in life are also the most fulfilling.

Join us for a very enriching account of Louise’s Everest Summit journey and how her experience and learnings tie directly into cybersecurity leadership, risk management and goal setting. The Power and Peril of Connection theme for this year’s summit could not be more fitting backdrop to this powerful lunchtime keynote.

Keynote: Louise McEvoy, Mountaineer & Cyber Professional
