Seeking Women in Cyber Security For New Book “The Rise of the Cyber Women”

Seeking Women in Cyber Security For New Book “The Rise of the Cyber Women”

I am proud to announce that I am currently writing a book which will be published via Amazon Createspace early next year called “The Rise of the Cyber Women“.

Staying safe online has never been more important, with cyber attacks happening to organisations large and small all over the world.  Yet  a huge cyber skills gap exists with those who do enter the profession tending to be men. Few women pursue careers in cyber security, but those who do are shattering the glass ceiling and contributing to the safety and security of the internet, the CNI and our day to day lives. Furthermore, the cyber security industry offers a huge amount of opportunity for those who are neurodiverse to enter the industry.

This book is a compilation of inspiring stories and interviews with some of the women who are pioneers for the industry and leading the way in cyber security today. It also gives 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 am actively seeking women in cyber security to be a part of this book, and to share their journey into a career in cyber to help inspire other women and encourage them to enter the industry. If this sounds like you and like something you would like to be a part of please email me via hello@lisaventura.co.uk and let’s talk.
