I’m delighted to announce that “The Rise of the Cyber Women: Volume 2” is now available to buy via Amazon Direct Publishing.

As a woman in the cyber security industry who had a non-linear journey into it, I was inspired to compile and edit the book to help give a voice to other women in the industry. I hope that the book, along with volume one, will act as an inspirational guide to women who might be thinking about taking their first steps into a career in cyber security but think they lack the skills or competencies to do so.

“The Rise of the Cyber Women: Volume 2” is a compilation of inspiring stories with women in the cyber security industry from all over the world who are pioneers and leading the way in helping to protect the world from the growing cyber threat. 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.

The contributors included in the book in order of appearance are: Lianne Potter, Andrea Manning, Pooja Agrawalla, Caroline Ndege, Sai Honig, Yatia Hopkins, Vina Ta, Federica Vitale, Cyle dela Cruz, Alexandria Horne, Shipra Aggarwal, Jothi Dugar, Aarti Gadhia, Jacinda Erkelens, Kim Crawley, Deborah Leary and Michala Liavaag.
