It all Began With a Simple Idea...

With two words, "what if", a spark ignited a flame. What if, just for one day, we would forget the way that the industry currently is and create it anew in a way that gives the same opportunities to women that men have enjoyed for decades. What if we could stand up in union and open our minds and our hearts to help make that dream a reality. What if...

The first Lookout S(h)ecurity Bootcamp was held on June 23rd at Lookout's Headquarters in San Francisco. A combined effort between the Lookout Diversity Steering Committee and HackerOne, twenty five women were given the opportunity to participate in something truly unique: a one day, free-to-attend hands-on training session in security from professionals in the industry culminating with a grand prize raffle to attend DEF CON 25 in Las Vegas, Nevada. When the application process was opened, nobody knew what to expect. Much to the surprise of everyone involved, over one hundred applications were received in the first three days, four times the amount that could even attend.

Over the course of the next six months, two more Lookout S(h)ecurity Bootcamps were held in Lookout's other offices with variations on the original theme, one in Boston and one in Toronto. However, the Lookout S(h)ecurity Bootcamps were destined for something much greater.

The first plans to develop the Day of Shecurity were penned in late December of 2017. The goal: Bigger, Bolder, BADDER. Making a small splash simply wasn't going to suffice. The Day of Shecurity had to be something that made an asteroid size impact to the industry; something big enough and bold enough to make permanent changes to the industry. In short, the Day of Shecurity couldn't simply be a whisper; it had to be a deafening roar.

 Please join us June 16th to witness what we believe will be a truly epic event and the start of something that will change the course of our industry forever. Together, we can make a difference.
