Cybersecurity Ventures is excited to announce that we’ve published our first book — Women Know Cyber: 100 Fascinating Females Fighting Cybercrime.
“The trailblazing women featured in this book represent the best of what our collective action against cybercrime can be,” states Sylvia Acevedo, who wrote the book’s foreword.
“I’m so inspired by these pioneering women and encouraged by their stories,” adds Acevedo, a well-known author, entrepreneur, engineer, and rocket scientist. “Because of out-of-the-box thinkers, innovators, and leaders like them, the fight against cybercrime is entering a new era where women are confidently adding their voices to the mix — not just creating a path for themselves, but opening up opportunities for others forging ahead in their wake.”
Women Know Cyber features cybersecurity experts from across the globe, with varying backgrounds, who stand out for protecting governments, businesses, and people from cybercrime — and for their contributions to our community.
How do we move the needle from 20 percent to 50 percent in the coming years? One answer may be that we need to look at the glass as being half-full, rather than half-empty — as has been the case for way too long by way too many people. Let’s highlight the sheer number of women in cybersecurity — in an effort to attract more women to an industry that desperately needs them.
Women Know Cyber is aimed at students, parents, teachers, and anyone contemplating an education or career in the cybersecurity field.
Download the free PDF version of the book here. The book will be available on Amazon next month, and an eBook for Kindle and others will be available as well.
Women Know Cyber is sponsored by FutureCon Events, founded by Kim Hakim, a U.S. Navy veteran with more than two decades of experience in producing thousands of cybersecurity conferences. There are two Women Know Cyber book signings scheduled at FutureCon — Denver, Colo. on Jul. 31, 2019, and Boston, Mass. on Oct. 9, 2019.
