I had a chance last month to host a panel discussion with the leaders of Womens Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC). For those of you who don’t know about WSC, it’s a nonprofit focused on empowering women to succeed in the cybersecurity industry. I first met the Founder Lisa Jiggetts in 2016 during my roadtrip across the country for the PBS Documentary, Life Hackers. I was so touched by her down-to-earth and candid guidance on how to be a part of the industry and really focus on developing technical skills.
So it was a no-brainer when I was approached to host the monthly Career Conversations with the leadership team of the organization. Please excuse any mistakes you may hear from my end but do take a listen as these superwomen give insights from personal to professional aspects of the industry.
We’ll discuss topics such as: what made them decide on IT or Cyber Security, what were some of their work/life challenges, and what skills and education do they see as essential to success? Whether you are an experienced professional or just contemplating a future in Cyber Security, WSC’s Career Conversations allows you to have a conversation with women making a difference. Join us and share in Career Conversations with successful women in cyber security! You can hear the entire conversation here.
