Aleada’s Elena Elkina Leads Virtual Panel for Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) Session on Recruiting Diversity for Inf

LAS VEGAS , August 02 /Businesswire/ - Aleada Consulting, a leading minority-female-owned privacy and data protection company in Silicon Valley, today announced that Elena Elkina, co-founder and partner, will lead a virtual panel at BlackHat 2021 focusing on how to recruit diversity candidates for Infosecurity and Privacy teams. The panel is organized by Women in Infosec and Privacy of which Elkina is a board member and co-founder. Aleada was recently certified as a Women Business Enterprise.

The session is scheduled for Wednesday, August 4 from 12:30 -1:30 PM PDT and features panelists:

  • Dr. Chenxi Wang, the Founder and General Partner of Rain Capital, an early-stage venture fund focused on Cybersecurity and Aleada Consulting Advisor
  • Lauren Zabierek, the Executive Director of the Cyber Project at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center
  • Rich Noguera, the Chief Information Security Officer at AppDynamics

“It is common to see a massive under-representation of women, people of color, and those with visible and hidden disabilities in the infosec and privacy field,” said Elkina. “We know diversity is a topic of discussion when recruiting and hiring infosec and privacy professionals, but there is often little guidance available to those recruiting for these positions. We want to talk about ways to overcome obstacles and this panel has strong ideas on strategies to recruit for diversity.”
