We are the women in cyber. The few protecting the many. The underrepresented, who over influence. The half of the world, who see the problems differently, who solve them uniquely. We are the women in cyber safeguarding society. Protecting us all. We need more like us. We need more like you.
Meet Priya Pandey, a Deputy Manager in the Cyber practice, who is a part of the Application Protection team. She delivers step-by-step workflows to address vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the apps, Application Programming Interface (API), mobile, and other web platforms.
For Priya, cyber is a stimulating domain that inspires a sincere curiosity about how systems work and requires a tactical mindset that is patient and persistent to a fault.
She believes that to effectively address cybersecurity, an organisation's approach must be holistic. She further believes that one needs to be dynamic and adaptive because learning and delivering go hand in hand in this fast-growing industry. One must be willing to take a “stay-hungry-stay-curious” attitude to crack the code.
Priya’s advice to women is, “Develop a security-first mindset (the hacker mindset). Be dynamic and flexible, and if threat and risk management is something you believe in, then unquestionably, cyber is the right place for you. It’s time to focus your problem-solving attitude on the yet unsolved problems.”
