Last year we put together a list of 17 female founders and CEOs in cybersecurity and InfoSec to showcase these hardworking and resourceful women with a goal of inspiring a younger generation (or an older generation – there are no limits!). This year, we reached out to colleagues, peers, and ITSPmagazine readers and asked them who they would love to see on this list.
We were bombarded with suggestions! A big thank you to everyone who sent us the name of a woman whom you felt would be a great addition to this list. Although the title of this article remains the same, the number of female founders and CEOs is now at 42.
On November 19, 2014, the inaugural Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) was held at the United Nations in New York with 144 nations officially recognizing this day. Thanks to founder Wendy Diamond (who is on this list of course!), we have this conscious, worldwide movement that celebrates and supports female founders and CEOs who have overcome numerous challenges, many of them gender-specific.
So help us celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day on November 19th (and every day!) by celebrating and supporting women in business in any way you can, including using the hashtag #ChooseWOMEN and sharing this roundup to all your social media channels!
