- Bucks County Women in Tech Bi-Monthly Meetup
We hope you'll join us on Wednesday, September 18th at the Bucks County Women in Tech Meetup! Please note that we will be at a new location for this month. The fine folks at Stacks Co. Workspace in Doylestown are loaning us their digs for the night! Join us as Tracy Maleeff talks to us about Your Career Path into Information Security. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the market for Information Security jobs are projected to grow faster than the average of all occupations. Employers have a desperate need to hire talent who want to tackle the serious issue of Information Security. The industry is lacking women and underrepresented minorities, and opportunities abound! Learn from a librarian who made a career transition into a new career as a Cyber Analyst. Hear her story, get tips on how to investigate where you might fit into the Information Security world, and learn what you need to know to get up to speed. You will leave this session with a plan to explore your potential next job opportunity! AGENDA: 6:30pm Dinner & Networking 6:50pm Introductions 7:00pm Speaker, Tracy Z.
