Why do you enjoy working in the cyber security field? 

When you tell someone you’re a lawyer, you get asked for legal advice. Similarly, when you tell someone you’re working in cybersecurity, you instantly become a magnet for all their theories about well-known cyberattacks and digital fears. Conversations just become much more interesting because there’s plenty of ground to cover within the field of cybersecurity. We could be discussing the effectiveness of cybersecurity programs one minute and dating scams the next. With more and more of our personal and professional lives moving to the internet and the cloud, securing our digital trails becomes important and these conversations along the way are imperative in keeping the public informed.

 

What are your words of advice to encourage other women to work in the space? 

“I don’t have a technical background”, “I’m not an engineer” – if these are some of the thoughts holding you back from joining the industry, stop! You don’t need to be a security expert to be in this field. Cybersecurity is broad enough that you can contribute through what you do best: it could be marketing, it could be sales, it could be digital, it could be PR. The cybersecurity industry needs many diverse minds to get stronger.
