Are you a junior professional working in cybersecurity? Gen and Women4Cyber invite you to join our dedicated speed mentoring session by choosing one or more of the areas of interest and filling the form below:

 


Mentors and mentees will be matched in break-out rooms for a 12-minute mentoring conversation. Each participant will have 5 conversations during the time event. 

AREAS OF INTEREST:

  • Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC): involves policies, procedures, and standards organizations use to manage their information security risks and ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. It includes topics such as risk management, regulatory compliance, security audits, and security awareness and training. 
  • Cyber Threat Intelligence: involves gathering, analysing, and sharing information about emerging cyber threats and vulnerabilities. It includes topics such as threat modelling, threat intelligence sharing, and incident response planning. 
  • Cybersecurity Operations: focuses on detecting, investigating, and responding to cybersecurity incidents. It includes topics such as security operations centres, incident response teams, and digital forensics. 
  • Identity and Access Management (IAM): covers the processes and technologies used to manage user access to systems, applications, and data. It includes topics such as user authentication, authorization, and identity governance. 
  • Network Security: involves securing computer networks against unauthorized access, attacks, and data breaches. It includes topics such as firewalls, intrusion detection/prevention systems, and virtual private networks. 
  • Application Security: focuses on securing software applications from potential security threats, such as SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting attacks, and other types of vulnerabilities. It includes topics such as secure coding practices, penetration testing, and vulnerability scanning. 
  • Cybersecurity Law and Ethics: covers the legal and ethical considerations of cybersecurity. It includes topics such as privacy laws, intellectual property laws, cybercrime laws, and ethical hacking. 
  • Secure Product Development: covers the process of building security into software and hardware products from the outset, rather than bolting it on as an afterthought. It includes topics such as threat modelling, secure coding practices, security testing methodologies, and risk assessments. Secure product development is particularly important in today’s interconnected world, where many products are networked or rely on third-party services that may introduce new security risks.
