Stories From AcceleRISE 2019

Christina Pryka

I was proud to be part of the inaugural AcceleRISE conference, which addressed a gap in the security industry. I made a lot of meaningful connections that I've been able to nurture into professional relationships. The best part was the ability to get a broader perspective; working for a security company gives you a view of the industry, but only as far as it concerns your role. Attending AcceleRISE allowed me to survey the whole industry and understand the bigger picture and where each service and company fits in the ecosystem, and it really gave me insight I was able to take back to my company. For anyone wanting to build their career in this field, AcceleRISE is a must-attend.

The AcceleRISE conference is a unique opportunity to meet security professionals from across the U.S. I enjoyed hearing about emerging trends and the increased importance of the security industry. I left feeling motivated with powerful new connections that I have already leveraged in my day-to-day role. I would encourage any professional interested in a long-term career in the security industry to take part in this incredible event. Thank you to SIA for making the event a great success.

The inaugural AcceleRISE event last year was a fantastic testament to the industry's focus on diversity. It brought together ideas from all areas of the security industry and opened doors and communication paths for bright young minds to connect with established industry resources outside their organizations. I would highly recommend the event to young professionals hoping to advance their careers.

Taking time away from your desk to go to a conference can be a hard decision when you are really busy, but I am so incredibly glad I decided to attend the inaugural AcceleRISE conference! I gained incredible industry insight from the seasoned security speakers and connected with so many new faces and fresh perspectives. The conference is geared toward young security professionals, making it fun and unlike other industry conference I have attended.
