Employees are an integral part of this positive culture. In every interaction I have had, professional or other, I have encountered a willingness among others to help as much as possible. There is a very comfortable working environment with a healthy feedback culture that advances and lets us help each other to grow professionally.

My experiences have taught me to appreciate what I have, to make do with very little, and to treat everyone with respect by understanding each individuals unique challenges. You never know what someone else is going through or how a little support and encouragement can be just what that person needs to achieve their goal.

Nearly 50% of the worlds power is held by women, so without women in cybersecurity, think of the potential were missing! Women are multitaskers, with a temperament that enables us to navigate difficult situations calmly and respectfully, and often we can engage one on one with customers in a different, more empathetic way.
