Cyber security training company SANS Institute and Women in Cyber Security Middle East (WiCSME), are promoting the importance of a diverse security team at its first edition of an annual WiCSME2020 conference to take place November 14-15, 2020.

The upcoming virtual conference will see SANS Institute powering a Capture The Flag (CTF) track preceding the event on November 12th and 13th. The SANS Virtual BootUp CTF platform is developed in a way that grants participants a cyber-skills exercise through solving different challenges, helping build cybersecurity skills across organizations. The conference itself which has its theme “To Empower and Secure Together,” will cover insights on interesting and key cybersecurity topics from regional and international speakers.

WiCSME is a voluntary group of Women formed in 2018 to promote and increase women participation in the field of cybersecurity as well as encourage more female leadership in the industry.
