I’m delighted to announce that submissions for volume 2 of “The Rise of the Cyber Women” are now open. The book will be published on International Womens’ Day on 8 March 2021 via Amazon Direct Publishing.

The Rise of the Cyber Women: Volume 2” will be a second compilation 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 who haven’t had a linear path into cyber security or who have overcome much adversity to get to where they are today in the industry.

I’m looking for 12 women in cyber security to submit a chapter for the book, and very much welcome contributions from the BAME and LGBTQ+ communities.

If you are interested in contributing a chapter to be included in the book, please download the submission guidelines via the link below:

All the details including how to send your chapter for inclusion in the book are outlined in the submission guidelines. All proceeds from the book will be split equally between the contributors included in it once any outside costs are met which I may need to pay for, such as proofreading costs.

if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via info@cybersecurityassociation.co.uk.

I look forward to receiving your submission for volume 2 of  “The Rise of the Cyber Women”.
