#CyberChats Podcast 003: Balancing Act- Women in Cybersecurity on Managing Risks and Opportunity featuring guests Erica Wilson and Jamie Kemp

Episode Details

It’s Women’s History Month, and we’re excited to not only focus on women and girls in cybersecurity, but also on aspects of risk management.

Not all people or businesses can tolerate the same amount or type of risk… so that means everyone looks at cybersecurity differently. Risk management is about making smart decisions. What are you risking when you decide to take a certain class or download a particular application? Are you missing out on friends? Are you sacrificing speed on your device? What does that type of analysis look like in the cyber career space?

During this episode, we not only chat about the unique perspectives of our guests and how they got into cyber, but we discuss resources and issues specific to girls and women in cybersecurity. By listening to our podcast and sharing it with your network, you can help us to raise awareness and accessibility of cybersecurity careers. Together, we can create a more diverse and resilient cybersecurity workforce that can tackle the challenges of the future.

So, what are you waiting for? Tune in and join the conversation!
