If you were at the RSA Conference 2020 this year in San Francisco, you may have caught Deidre Diamond’s presentation on talent exfiltration and the keys to retaining top cybersecurity employees. Deidre has appeared as a RSAC speaker in the past and this year was recognized by the event as a top rated speaker.
The recognition is reserved for only a handful of top individual or co-presenters who receive an attendee feedback score above a 4.3 (out of 5) at two or more conferences. It’s also evidence that Deidre’s take on the cybersecurity hiring process and worker retention is resonating with those in the industry. Like Deidre, many in cybersecurity believe the hiring process is broken and are looking for ways to make the process easier and less painful for both those hiring and those looking for a job.
You can watch her presentation, “Talent Exfiltration: An Insider’s Guide to the Talent Attack Life Cycle” here, or check out Diamond’s key takeaways here.

The organization aims to empower all genders, specifically women, to find career opportunities in cybersecurity.
