The Zensory partners with UK Cyber Week


The Zensory is joining an expert speaker to form the inaugural Inclusive Cyber Space at this year’s UK Cyber Week, held at Olympia London on April 17th-18th.

The Zensory will be joining speaker Holly Foxcroft, Head of Neurodiversity in Cyber Research and Consulting at Stott and May, and NeuroCyber. The space is sponsored by Stott and May Consulting and Telefonica Tech.

The Inclusive Cyber Space will bring the cybersecurity community together through a programme of talks and panels centred around wellbeing, diversity and the future of work.

Informed by some of the industry’s leading diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) experts, including:

  • Anna Collard, SVP of Content Strategy and Evangelist, Africa, at KnowBe4
  • Daniel Osen, Mental Trainer and Author at Athenas
  • Tony Richards, Edward Tucker, Glory Okwata from Cyblack
  • Mike Spain, Founder and CEO of NeuroCyber 
  • Ashley Sweetman, Senior Manager of Cyber Partnerships and Government Engagement and Group CISRO at Standard Chartered Bank
  • Charlie Rossi, a student at Oxford University

“Awareness campaigns are where you start and acceptance means you have built a network internally that staff feel comfortable enough to be part of; but if you don’t want that network to fade, being fully engaged means inclusion is built into your company strategy, and that takes leadership buy in,” Steph Aldridge, Director at NeuroCyber, said. “If you want to see leadership delivering awareness, sharing acceptance, and showcasing what it takes “to do more,” then attend The Inclusive Cyber Space next week.

“We hope that you know that we built this dedicated space for all of you.”

The Zensory’s leadership team, Jasmine Eskenzi, CEO and co-founder and Jade Eskenzi, COO will be part of two sessions.

The first, on the 17th April at 11:30am, where Jasmine Eskenzi and Holly Foxcroft will discuss the future of the cybersecurity industry (Cyber Shift: The Future of the Cyber Workforce). 

“Sometimes diversity and inclusion topics can become echo chamber discussions, we wanted to create this space to give people clear guidance and action points,” Holly Foxcroft, Head of Neurodiversity in Cyber Research and Consulting at Stott and May, said. “There is a topic for everyone and I beg you to attend a talk that you are unfamiliar with.

“Cybersecurity is diverse by nature, therefore we need a diverse workforce – but learn how to support them.” 

On day two of the event, 18th April 2024, Jade Eskenzi will join Holly Foxcroft, Charlie Rossi, Student at Oxford University, and Ashley Sweetman, Senior Manager, Cyber Partnerships and Government Engagement, Group CISRO, at Standard Chartered Bank, in a discussion entitled Data Demographics, taking place at 15.20pm.

“We’re excited to bring this space to life with such esteemed, established, and inspirational industry figures,” Jasmine Eskenzi, CEO and Co-Founder of The Zensory, said. “Inclusion in cybersecurity is more important than ever, but we have to go beyond words. The Inclusive Cyber Space aims to make DE&I efforts accessible – and actionable – for all organisations in the industry.”

Members of The Zensory’s senior team, alongside representatives from NeuroCyber, Stott and May and Telefonica Tech, will be on hand throughout the two-day event to discuss DE&I and wellbeing in cyber in more detail. For more information visit: The Inclusive Cyber Space – UK Cyber Week 2024
