Keynote Speakers

Opening Keynote: Steph

It’s Broke, Let’s Fix It

For her day job, Stephanie serves as a level 2 cloud security operations analyst for Duo. Outside of her 9-5, however, Stephanie has filled her life with all kinds of cool activities. She has worked with WISP, SANS, Tech Field Day and LinkedIn Learning on great efforts to support the underrepresented, provide perspectives that are missing from the conversation, and educate people on security topics that are otherwise inaccessible. She speaks at conferences and virtual events on both soft skills and hard skill related subjects. She co-hosts a ""happy hour"" inspired podcast called Coolest Nerds in the Room, where conversations surrounding the lives of tech people are nurtured. Stephanie recognizes those that inspired her or helped her get to where she is today and hopes that everything she does moving forward does the same for others. Follow Steph on Twitter and LinkedIn, or visit her online at StephAndSec.com. Her podcast is also available everywhere.

Opening Keynote: Casey Varcharr

It’s Broke, Let’s Fix It

Casey has been a Cybersecurity Engineer since graduating with her Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. During that time, she has received her Master's in Cybersecurity, become an avid member of infosec Twitter, and started her blog Caseyis, where she enjoys writing about an array of different tech-related topics.

Opening Keynote: Tricia Howard

It’s Broke, Let’s Fix It

Tricia Howard is an artist gone rogue who ended up in the wonderful world of security. With a B.A. in Theatre Arts and interests ranging from Star Wars to Opera, she brings a unique and artistic perspective to infosec. When she’s not trying to get you to click on marketing emails, you can find her playing with her pomsky Darth, singing, painting, dramatically reading cold sales emails, and doing copious amounts of jigsaw puzzles.

Closing Keynote: Emily Crose

Blood In The Wires: How The Tech Industry Fails Humanity

Emily Crose has been an information security professional for over a decade. She has been an officer for multiple government organizations including the NSA, CIA and US Army INSCOM. She currently works to secure critical industrial infrastructure worldwide. She is also an advocate for counter white nationalism, and government transparency.
