Woman using a laptop

Women in technology and cybersecurity is an important topic. We engage with two female cybersecurity professionals to provide first hand accounts of their experiences and thoughts on women in technology and discuss several initiatives that are supporting female opportunity to learn and have a successful career in the technology and cybersecurity space. Steve and Gerry also provide some easy to implement security controls that significantly reduce personal cyber risk to you. Special thanks to Vanna Ramaiah and Whitney Champion for their time and contributions.
