“Girls Hack Village presents SquadCon” is a new three-day cybersecurity conference that seeks to bring gender-diverse perspectives of the contributions, experiences, and issues facing the industry’s others.  

Microsoft and the international non-profit BlackGirlsHack (BGH Foundation) are lead sponsors.

Girls Hack Village returns for its second year of providing training, research, and discussions driven by the needs of the cybersecurity industry.

SquadCon includes talks, labs, hands-on workshops, discussions, CTFs, and panels to move toward our mission of improving diversity in cybersecurity. Keynotes include: Camille Stewart Gloster, Deputy National Cyber Director for Technology & Ecosystem for The White House; Director Jen Easterly, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency; and Marcus J. Carey, “Tribe of Hackers” Author and Hacker. SquadCon will bring a wealth of experience and a vision of what the cybersecurity industry could look like.

“Hackers that are new or from underrepresented communities may not often feel comfortable in existing conferences,” said Tennisha Martin, chair for BlackGirlsHack. “SquadCon brings inspiring stories of professionals at all career levels, including world-class ethical hackers, researchers, academics, and leaders from the private and public sectors.”

SquadCon is an independent conference event in Las Vegas during Hacker Summer Camp scheduled for August 10-12th. Run by the creators of Girls Hack Village, SquadCon exists to help foster diversity and inclusion in cybersecurity.
