LinkedIn
January 03, 2021
Every year, around this time, I start to reflect. Chances are, you do too. Most people are starting to think about what they want for the coming year. They’re setting goals, getting clear on what they want to resolve, and embracing fresh starts and new ways of being.

Are women still being hindered from entering & succeeding in tech?
LinkedIn
December 17, 2020
I’m not actually sure how I stumbled across Jemima Khan interviewing Hollywood actress and star of Desperate House Wives, Eva Longoria at the world's largest tech conference, Web Summit six years ago. All I remember is how their discussion, “Supporting Businesswomen and Facing the 'isms.’ left me feeling.

Charged.

Unaware of Eva’s activism and how much philanthropic work she did outside of acting and directing, I was interested to hear her speak about her philanthropy work, her take on the impact tech makes, and what brought her to a web summit in Dublin.

How to get over your fear of building a cybersecurity personal brand
linkedin
May 13, 2019
During a chat to a client recently, she voiced a concern that many of us have but few of us admit, let alone share. She told me she understood why having a public persona (a personal brand) was necessary, but she knew something was holding her back from building it. It turned out she was deeply afraid of…

Why visible female role models in cybersecurity are so important
linkedin
May 09, 2019
As you know, I’ve been studying how the sisterhood works in cybersecurity for quite a few years now—that’s why I’m working to better the world by training and educating businesses in cybersecurity, specifically by focusing on gender inclusion in science through the IN Security Movement. You see, I founded it following years of research that I ploughed into my best-selling book, IN Security, which is built on the premise of…

IN Security
RETHINK Press
October 20, 2018
Women are fundamentally different to men and, when it comes to cybersecurity, one thing is certain. . .IF YOU'RE SHORT ON WOMEN YOU'RE LESS SAFE. Women matter in cybersecurity because of the way they view and deal with risk. Typically, women are more risk averse, compliant with rules, and embracing of organisational controls and technology than men. They're also extremely intuitive and score highly when it comes to emotional and social intelligence, which enables them to remain calm during times of turbulence – a trait that's required when major security breaches and incidents occur. As cybercrime, terrorism and warfare is increasing, and the number of women in cybersecurity is declining, now is the time to take action. By combining stories, interviews and data with practical advice, the golden rules and checklists, IN Security provides the means to turn things around. When you read this book you'll understand why the numbers of women have fallen, along with strategies for attracting, identifying, and retaining more women in cybersecurity. This book is essential reading for anyone in cybersecurity or looking to get into it.

IN Security Movement
IN Security Movement
November 01, 2016
The IN Security Movement is an exclusive network of cybersecurity professionals who believe that a failure to attract and retain women in cybersecurity is making us less safe. The Movement stands behind a mission to champion women in cybersecurity and enables all who believe in this to contribute. The IN Security Movement incorporates a tribe where you can learn from like-minded professionals, help others out by sharing insight, advice and information, discuss ideas, raise questions, network, and build meaningful relationships. We welcome those who are just starting out in the industry, those who've taken a break and are returning to the workplace, and those who are at the top of their game. We have three objectives for our community members to fulfill:

1.) To inspire, empower and support women in cybersecurity.
2) To act as campaigners for change and perform work (research, pledges, codes of conduct etc.) so women in cybersecurity become standard (at every level) not exception.
3) To network, connect and build meaningful relationships with those in cybersecurity who share our aligned vision.

The IN Security Movement was founded following the release of my best-selling book, IN Security. We meet regularly and I use my leadership and influencer skills to set up activism events, campaigns, research and women's scholarships. Good examples of this are the IN Security Pledge, Code of Conduct, Black Hat Women's Scholarship. To date, I've been able to award over 126 women with IN Security & Black Hat scholarships, a value of £214,000
