Today, women are entering and rising through the ranks of cybersecurity experts, with more expected to join these ranks in coming years. By the end of 2019, women are expected to represent 20% of the global cybersecurity workforce, up dramatically from 2013, when only 11% of the workforce was female.

At this webcast, survey author, forensic examiner and SANS instructor Heather Mahalik discusses key results of the survey of successful women in varied roles within the cybersecurity community and draws on experiences of such women to provide practical advice to women all along their career life cycle. Attendees will learn about:

  • Directing your career path
  • Growing as a manager/leader
  • Interacting with others

As an added bonus, Heather will share the advice successful women have provided to those entering the cybersecurity field today.

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by Heather Mahalik.
