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 Richa Gautam, a Manager in the Security Operations Center (SOC) in our Cyber practice at Risk Advisory. Richa helps our clients secure their sensitive information from data breaches via monitoring, detection, and prevention methods.
She believes that a career in cybersecurity is for any woman who is intellectually curious, willing to think unconventionally and engage in a lifetime of learning. She also believes that the current representation of women in cybersecurity has made positive developments over the last few years, and more opportunities for women will boost diversity in the cybersecurity domain.
Richa’s career advice to women is, “Security doesn’t require innate magical abilities. So, don't be intimidated; be confident in your capabilities and take chances. We can learn everything we need to know to succeed with the ability to ask the right questions, and the most important word is 'why' in today’s security world.”
