Telling women to be more confident is a stupid idea, and in this episode I speak to Dr Jessica Barker, the author of Confident Cyber and Co-founder of Cygenta about confidence. Jess sheds so much light on this topic especially given her background in sociology. She talks about the imposter syndrome which plagues so many of us in cybersecurity, whether gender matters with her work, and what she’s seeing when it comes to the human side of cybersecurity.
So, get comfy, pop in those earbuds, and get ready to hear what Jess has to say.
