With cybersecurity attacks and breaches becoming common news, the demand for cybersecurity experts is on the rise, more than ever before. In this episode of “ACM-W Celebrating Technology Leaders,” we chat with three inspiring women with decades of combined experience in the field to discuss how the cybersecurity arena has evolved, what is the state today, and what are their insights for the future. We will also look back and explore their inspiration to join the field of information security and their journeys since.

In their stories, we will find our nuggets of wisdom and inspiration.
