Vision & Voice: LIVE panel discussion (June 30)
As women consider pursuing careers in cybersecurity, they often don’t see the industry as a viable option. Low representation, lack of female role models, stereotyping, and pay gaps all contribute to the perception, and reality, that the cybersecurity playing field is far from balanced. On June 30th, SafeGuard Cyber hosted a leadership panel called, "Vision & Voice: Removing Barriers for Women in Cybersecurity." It was so well attended, we wanted to make it available to a wider audience. This conversation featured insights from women cyber leaders Naomi Buckwalter, Amy De Salvatore, and Evelyn de Souza. They shared their perspectives on how a new generation of women can enter the industry, remove barriers, and achieve lofty career heights as cybersecurity professionals and executives. The panel also featured Lisa Hayashi and Karen Kukoda from SafeGuard Cyber.
