    Deidre Diamond
    Founder and CEO, CyberSN and Secure Diversity

    Deidre Diamond is the founder and CEO of CyberSN, the largest cybersecurity talent acquisition technology and services firm in the U.S., transforming job searching and hiring for the cybersecurity industry. Standardizing all cybersecurity job functions into a common taxonomy of 45 roles, the CyberSN platform allows professionals to make anonymous, public profiles that match with employer-posted job descriptions using the same taxonomy. This innovation is disruptive and solves a serious national security issue. Deidre’s leadership style combines 25 years of experience working in technology and staffing, her love of the cybersecurity community, and a genuine enthusiasm for people. She has led large-scale sales and operations and built high-performance teams at Rapid7 and Motion Recruitment prior to founding her own organizations. She believes a company-culture established on ‘anything is possible’ attitudes and open communication frameworks, along with positive energy, career advancement, and kindness, enables her teams to have fun at work and reach beyond peak performance. She also encourages the use of EQ (Emotional Intelligence) skills: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, social skills, and empathy. Deidre has also founded SecureDiversity.org, a non-profit organization working to raise awareness for, and increase the hiring of, women and underrepresented humans in the cybersecurity workforce. She has also spoken at some of the biggest tech summits, conferences, and podcasts in the world including ISC2 Congress, RSA, ISSA International, and Hacker Halted.
