With Women’s History Month kicking off today, we heard from Danessa Lambdin, VP at AT&T Cybersecurity, who shared her insights and advice for fellow women and girls who are looking to break into STEM.
Danessa Lambdin, VP, AT&T Cybersecurity:
“I have always been acutely aware of the ways in which women have had to fight for their seats at the table in every industry. As a woman in STEM, I feel grateful to be able to work in such a dynamic field as cybersecurity. I have the unique opportunity to play a role in helping organizations of all sizes on their cybersecurity journey to resiliency; whether that means securing their network edge or implementing new security models such as Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to support the remote access and security needs of the hybrid workforce.
This Women’s History Month, I am celebrating all of the driven women making waves in their industries, with a specific nod to those in STEM who are paving the way for a more technologically advanced and security-centric future for all. For women and girls trying to break into the tech industry, I highly encourage them to find a mentor in their field of interest and always be willing to share their observations. Taking even the smallest of actions such as establishing professional connections and addressing challenges when implementing new and innovative technology, will serve women and girls well and help hasten their success.”
