A conference focused on Women, Diversity, and Inclusion in Information Security that embraces all genders, sexualities, and skill levels. The Diana Initiative features multiple speaker tracks, fully expanded villages with hands-on workshops, and a women-led Capture the Flag event.
This year, our slogan “Breaking Boundaries Byte by Byte” allows us to focus on the different ways that representation in cybersecurity – whether gender, sexuality, skill level, or red/blue/purple team alignment – can help protect data today and into the future.
From the designer of this year’s logo, [@1dark0ne]: “This logo is a celebration of diverse cultures and breaking boundaries. It’s a juxtaposition of rigid geometry and organic movement. Bytes break free of the grid. It honors the underlying structure and beauty of mathematics in the work we do, whilst challenging the boundaries of a world we once knew, in order to create a better one.”

Staff & Volunteers
We are known for our quality and variety of speakers, carefully chosen each year. And thanks to our virtual venue, we have a great opportunity to feature a multitude of first-time event speakers in a safe and supportive environment.
With talks spanning a wide range of topics, we've got something for everyone. From more technical talks to thought-provoking ones, from diversity and employment, to building better systems. You're bound to find something you don't want to miss.
Come build a DIY Blinky Badge with us! This year we will be building them from off-the-shelf parts instead of custom printed circuit boards. Check the parts list and see if you've got what you need in your supplies. Don't worry, there's a few different versions to try.
As in years past, we want to help you at every stage of your InfoSec Career - that's why we've got an array of volunteers ready to help with resume reviews, LinkedIn profiles, and interviewing skills. The virtual format is also allowing us to feature career-related talks.
