Episode Details

Join us for a throwback episode featuring Erica Wilson, VP of Global Cybersecurity and Privacy Risk Management at Reinsurance Group of America, and Jamie Kemp, President of Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) at Lakota West High School, as they delve into the unique perspectives and experiences of women in cybersecurity.

In this episode, we explore the issues and resources specific to girls and women in the field, as well as how our guests found their way into the cyber world. Erica and Jamie guide you through the decision-making journey, discussing risk management in the context of the choices you make every day. Not all people or businesses can tolerate the same amount or type of risk, leading to different approaches to managing it. From deciding to take a particular class to choosing which application to download, we examine how these choices impact not only your cybersecurity career but also your personal life.
