Sometimes your path isn’t clear until you’ve reached your destination. About a year ago, I started interviewing some of the most talented people in the cybersecurity industry. This started with relationships I made with folks I met at trade shows, partners, customers, and well-known big thinkers in our industry.

When I started interviewing people, I always asked if they knew others in the industry that they would also consider visionaries, experts, and changemakers. Fast forward a few months and I had accumulated about a dozen interviews. I noticed something when reviewing them: they were all women. Through complete happenstance I had begun recording podcasts with some of the best and brightest people in cybersecurity and they just happened to be women. At that point, I decided to focus this podcast on the top women changemakers in our industry with a goal of putting together 30 interviews. We blew past 30 and ended up with 45 podcasts and a new series was born: Women in Cyber. The Women in Cyber series is part of our already award-winning podcast: The Cybersecurity Effectiveness Podcast, that I started in August 2018.

Below you’ll find one of the largest podcast aggregations of women in cybersecurity on the Internet. The topics we discuss are extremely diverse, with expertise sourced from red & blue teamers, reverse engineers, hackers, policy makers, lawyers, journalists, venture capitalists, founders, professors, students, and executives. All these interviews are live and freely available through your favorite podcast player – just search for the “Cybersecurity Effectiveness Podcast”.
