Women in Security


Amelia Ghidotti


Lisa O'Connell


Is the company talent management process helping your career advancements? How do we combat the assumptions about demographics and life choices; disparity starting from the first landing spot; women leave to start families; women don't aspire to upper management? The purpose of this webinar is to share some personal experiences in applying project management principles to a technical career planning and what you can do to track your own progress over time. Skills in cybersecurity is only the first step, technical proficiency, problem solving capabilities, knowledge in domain and context outside security and privacy as well as other soft skills are just as important for any technology focused career plans for women.
