I’m very proud to announce that I have started work on compiling a book to be published on Amazon Createspace early next year, and I’m seeking submissions from women in the cyber security industry to be included in it.

“The Rise of the Cyber Women” will be a collection of inspiring stories and interviews with women in the cyber security industry who are pioneers and leading the way in helping to protect the world from the growing cyber threat. It is hoped that this book will feature women in the cyber security industry from all over the world.

Those who are included and featured in the book will give their hints, tips and advice to women who are looking to pursue a career in cyber security or change their career path into cyber security.

I’m particularly looking for women to include in the book who haven’t had a linear path into the cyber security industry or who have overcome much adversity to get to where they are today.

All profits from this book once initial costs are covered will go towards providing support and events in 2020 for women in cyber which is one of the areas the UK Cyber Security Association, which I am the CEO & Founder of, works hard to raise awareness of. The UKCSA is a not for profit organisation/company limited by guarantee.

If you are a woman, or identify as one, and you are interested in being included in this book please download the chapter submission guidelines here..

The deadline for chapter submissions is 31st January 2020.
