Once it was rare to find women in positions of leadership at high-tech companies. Not anymore; women are increasingly taking their places at the table, whether it’s in the department that designs algorithms, the boardroom, or the executive floor. Women are especially making their presence felt in cybersecurity – an area that I have been working in for several years.
Things are clearly getting better, but much more needs to be done. The success of women in tech, I believe, involves two factors – encouraging girls to not limit themselves, and an improved social structure that helps them to get there.
