Lisa Ventura is delighted to announce that her first book “The Rise of the Cyber Women” is now available to buy via Amazon Direct Publishing.

As a woman in the cyber security indusry who had a non-linear journey into it, Lisa was inspired to compile and edit this book to help give a voice to other women in the industry.

Those who are included and featured in this book shared not only their stories but also 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. Their tenacity and commitment to their careers in the cyber security industry is very impressive indeed.If you are a woman who is looking to make the move into the cyber security industry, you need to read this book.
