Why do you enjoy working in the cyber security field? 

The best thing about cyber is the wonderful people I have met and the amazing network I have been able to build over the years. It doesn’t matter where I move in the industry, I am able to leverage these contacts and I love working with people I genuinely like that become more like friends, rather than simply work acquaintances.

 

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

Continuously carve out time to network and build connections. Identifying key mentors in the industry is great but I believe finding key sponsors is even more imperative. I make a distinction between the two!  A mentor helps us grow our individual skills, listens to our challenges and offers their perspective. A sponsor on the other hand, is someone who advocates on your behalf when you are not in the room and is the person who helps you get your next gig.
