I’m delighted to announce that my book “The Rise of the Cyber Woman” will be released soon via Kindle Direct Publishing (formerly Amazon Createspace).  Those of you who will be included in the book have been notified via email.

I’ve been overwhelmed at the amount of interest the book has received and honoured that so many amazing women in cyber security have submitted chapters for inclusion in the book. I have enjoyed reading all of them immensely and while proofreading and editing the book one thing is clear. Even though women are often put off by pursuing careers in cyber security and technology, the ones that are in the industry have achieved great things despite often having a non-linear path into cyber security and technology, and they have overcome great challenges to get to where they are today.

I hope “The Rise of the Cyber Women” will inspire other women to enter the cyber security and technology industries and consider it as a viable career path. Much still needs to be done to encourage women to take up careers in cyber security and technology, and while great strides are being made, the more that is done to encourage other women into the industry, the better.

“The Rise of the Cyber Women” – released soon via Kindle Direct Publishing.
