Professional Dev

Join our keynote speaker Diana Kelley of Microsoft for a candid Peer-to-Peer format discussion.

Does it sometimes feel like everyone else is living their best cyber-career and you’re not? Join this conversation to share your experience and get advice from peers about choices that support career growth. Together we’ll share our successes and address questions like: Should I be more technical or more business focused? Do certifications help? Is it better to manage people management or grow as an individual contributor? When is it time jobs or companies? How to avoid burnout? Is there life after CISO?

Session Objectives:

• Learn from peers how career choices have impacted their success
• Advice on how to navigate career questions like whether or not to go back to school/get a cert
• Explore the trade-offs of going deep technically vs. building more business skills
