Overview

"This book offers solace, unity, and motivation for those who feel marginalized in the realm of technology and cyber, inviting them to discover a supportive community and the courage to amplify their voices. Moreover, it provides an eye-opening experience for those who are part of the majority and haven't experienced being "othered" in this industry.

It serves as the key we have long sought after, unveiling the secrets to cultivating a positive professional journey in cyber careers. Cyberspace comprises technology, people, and policy, each crucial in mitigating cyber risks. Navigating this ever-changing landscape affects societal norms, culture, geopolitics, law, economics, personal security, national security, and international security. What captivates me about the cyber industry is its intellectual rigor, broad applicability, multidisciplinary problem-solving, technical foundation, and the opportunities it offers society. I find fulfillment in aiding others, expanding access to services, driving societal progress, fostering opportunities, and safeguarding our homes and lives.
This body of work is also a call to action for more Black women to see themselves in Cyber. With the increasing reliance on technology in all aspects of our lives, cyber has become a critical factor and concern for society at large. Communities of color, including Black communities, often face greater risks in the digital age, from surveillance to data breaches. Black women have a long history of advocating for and protecting their communities. From civil rights leaders like Fannie Lou Hamer to contemporary activists within the Black Lives Matter movement, we have shown an unwavering commitment to safeguarding the rights and well-being of marginalized communities. We must take up space in cyber and be in the position to ensure technologies and business models are designed to protect, rather than harm, these communities.
