Not Invisible: Women in Cyber Security

Not Invisible: Women in Cyber Security

Trust Elevate Dr Rachel O'Connell Founder

“There are no gender-specific qualities that make a cyber security professional great at their job.” Haiyan Song, SVP Security Markets at Splunk.

With this quote in mind, this week we’re talking to a host of brilliant women who are making a difference in cyber security.

What subliminal messages discourage girls from pursuing a career in tech? How can women tackle ingrained prejudices in the workplace? Does the key to unlocking AI's potential lie in studying the liberal arts? Should we adopt gender neutral names? How can we better protect our children online?

Just some of the questions explored on this week's programme.

  • Dr Rachel O’Connell, Founder and CEO, Trust Elevate (pictured above)
  • Nicky Cosgrove, Cyber Security Strategy, International Markets, Proofpoint
