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 Shanique, a Senior Manager in Deloitte Canada’s cyber practice and member of the Detect & Respond team. Her job is to help clients understand the cyber risks their organizations face and to empower them to better secure their information and that of their customers. Shanique helps them understand how to secure that data.
She enjoys the variety and diversity amongst the clients she serves – local, global, big, small, various industries – no two are the same, so no two solutions will be the same. How she finds the opportunities that cyber unlocks for each client will be different. And by helping her clients she is also helping to protect society.
Shanique also helps encourage and recruit university students into cyber careers by visiting university campus days and having conversations with students to give them exposure to broad range of opportunities a career in cyber provides.
About her work:
"Growing up, Shanique always knew she wanted to work in accounting or audit/information technology. Her background is in accounting, and when she came to Deloitte, she was able to marry those skills with IT by getting involved in some cybersecurity projects, and she has stuck with it ever since.
