Women Leaders in Equifax Security: Diverse Perspectives

About this talk
The terms security and cyber (short for cybersecurity) are often used interchangeably, referring to the profession narrowly defined as a team of professionals who leverage technologies and processes to defend an organization’s systems and networks from attack. However, this narrow use of security sells the field short – there are in fact a number of key functions under the security umbrella, one of which is cybersecurity, all of which are essential to the success of the organization. Some such functions are: physical security, fraud prevention, privacy, business continuity, disaster recovery, and risk management, although there are still more. And though the security field is defined by the technical “hacker” persona, people with backgrounds, skills, and interests of a wide variety have all found success under the umbrella of work in the security field.
Join our webinar to hear from several of Equifax’s women leaders who have come to security from different educational backgrounds, former careers, and interests, but who share a passion for challenging work, career growth, and personal excellence. Learn about their career journeys that led them to security, how they apply their interests and training to their current work and future professional goals, and hear the advice they have for the next generation of women in security. Bring your questions, too, and participate in this lively interactive discussion!
