16: Openness and support: Discussions on why diverse representation matters in cybersecurity

Security Stories

Business

On today's episode, Hazel and Noureen are joined by Leticia Gammill, Cisco’s Channel leader for Canada and Latin America, and Matt Watchinski, Vice President of Cisco Talos.  Together, we share our first hand experiences and stories on the impact of diversity in cybersecurity.  There are some brilliant insights here about where companies can find diverse talent, beyond the usual recruitment channels. We also discuss how organizations can build a culture of mentoring and support, so that members of diverse teams can feel appropriately valued, and retainment levels are strong. Also in this episode, Hazel chats to Cisco’s new CISO, Mike Hanley. Mike became our CISO in June, after 5 years in Duo where he was part of Duo Labs and then became Vice President of Security, and built and nurtured the team around him. From the importance of hiring a multitalented diverse team, to building a culture of appreciation, openness and fun, Mike’s interview is a fascinating listen for anyone leading a team today. We hope you enjoy this episode, and are inspired by both of these discussions as much as we were when we recorded them.Episode timestamps:0.00 Intro02:27 Discussion on diversity in cybersecurity46:49 Mike Hanley interview1h 26: Closing remarksFor more on this subject, do check out our new eBook, "Diversity in cybersecurity: A mosaic of career possibilities".  It contains over 20 interviews with cybersecurity professionals from around the world.
