The Rise of the Cyber People: Volume 1

The Rise of the Cyber People: Volume 1

Some of you may recall that I previously compiled and released some books:

The Rise of the Cyber Women: Volume 1
The Rise of the Cyber Women: Volume 2
The Varied Origins of the Cyber Men: Volume 1

It was my intention to release volume 2 of The Varied Origins of the Cyber Men in line with International Men’s Day, and Volume 3 of The Rise of the Cyber Women in line with International Women’s Day, but in the words of the great author Douglas Adams….life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.

In line with my new venture and entity which will be launching next year, rather than have separate books there will be one book a year called “The Rise of the Cyber People”. This will begin with volume 1 and it will be for EVERYONE globally, and not separated out by gender.

The criteria for having your story included in the book will be that you must have transitioned into the cyber security industry from another industry and have had a non-linear journey into cyber as it is my hope that the book will encourage and inspire others to transition into the cyber security industry. The book will be released via the Amazon Direct Publishing platform in Spring 2022 – a more definite release date will be announced soon.

If you would like more information and would like to consider having your story included in this book, please drop me an email via enquiries@lisaventura.co.uk or comment here. I’m currently compiling the submission guidelines and will be happy to send these to you once they are ready.

What is SC Unlocks: Ransomware?

The second event of the SC Unlocks Series will focus on the ever-present threat of ransomware attacks: how do we avoid them, how do we prepare for them and is it inevitable that they will break through?

SC Unlocks: Ransomware is the platform for cybersecurity professionals to learn more about recent ransomware attacks and how to deal with them when they happen. The conference will cover how malicious software continues to extort money from businesses as well as individuals. We will discuss if it is ever okay to pay the ransom and what can be done by the cybersecurity industry to stop the attacks.
