I am honoured and humbled to be chairing the February 2021 Masterclass with a Role Model by the European Women4Cyber Foundation!
As a reminder for those of you who managed to attend the 2020 Cybersecurity Leadership Summit, I’ve already addressed the most salient points of my diversity advocacy line. Below is a longer and a more detailed version of what I’ll be discussing:
Building a career in cybersecurity: tips, tricks… and traps
Yes, girls outperform boys at school. Yes, women managers outperform their men counterparts at work. Watt zillion initiatives exist to encourage more entry-level diversity. But how many tackle the leaky career pipeline?
Career paths are fast evolving in cybersecurity. We have made progress in addressing diversity. However, for equally fast change to happen, we need inclusion and transverse career paths. Women are as much C-level material as men. We must act accordingly.
So, is there a perfect profile to build a career in cybersecurity? Or is it more of an ideal combination of skills? How, as women, do we tackle ambition? Let’s talk about navigating those avenues because helping other women move forward with their career is good for people, technology and businesses alike.
