Barrier Briefs is about security, not gender diversity. Yet it’s pleasing to note that the Dark Reading blog is introducing “10 Women In Security You May Not Know But Should”. That’s cybersecurity, but it’s even more interesting to learn that women are increasingly present in one of the innermost realms of the security profession.
“In an effort to celebrate and shine a light on some of the work women are doing in cybersecurity,” we’re advised, “Dark Reading is publishing a series of articles that identify women who may not be as well-known in the industry (yet), but who are making key contributions. This first installment includes ten women in various sectors of cybersecurity, who were selected based on recommendations and research. The list is in no particular order.
“This is just the first in a series on women you may not know about, but whose work you might see more of in the future. If you know someone who fits the bill, please send us their names and any information about them and their work, to firstname.lastname@example.org. We expect to see the list get much longer.”
We welcome some Dark Reading on a bright subject, indeed.
