In this Bright Minds Q&A, we speak with longtime ICIT partner and Federal Reserve System V.P. and CISO Devon Bryan about his views on diversity in the field of cybersecurity. ICIT and Mr. Bryan have a long history of action in this space, with Mr. Bryan co-founding the International Consortium for Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) and ICIT helping launch ICMCP with a Town Hall in Congress sponsored by Congresswomen Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) and Judy Chu (D-CA) in 2015. Mr. Bryan will share his views on how our community has progressed since this Town Hall, as well as on the benefits of diversity for cybersecurity and other pressing issues.
