The accomplishments of those honored range from industry veterans, power players, women to watch and powerful advocates for cybersecurity — each a leader who happens to be women. Now in its tenth year, SC Media’s Women in IT Security program underscores the importance of identifying talent beyond traditional definitions. Each of these honorees have significantly influenced the cybersecurity conversation, inspiring both women and men. This program isn’t just about business leaders, but celebrating their significant contributions.” Thank you to SC Media for recognizing Gate 15‘s very excellent Jennifer Lyn Walker in the 2023 Women in IT Security list‼️ We’re excited to celebrate Jen as one of five recognized “Cybersecurity Veterans,” women who have delivered consistent performance and innovation over long careers.
