Summary

Offensive work is all about constant improvement, upping your skills to outsmart the attackers. There are many organizations out there for learning but a relative few focus on supporting women in their endeavors. Lisa Jiggetts, Founder & President of the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu, takes us through her passion for learning and sharing with others, addressing the cybersecurity talent shortage, and how she grew her own organization.

“The challenge for folks that are looking for work is like a chicken and egg issue. They want to hire folks with experience, but the folks can't get experience per se because they're not in the job. So, they're left to taking courses and home lab. And I hope that companies are taking that to affect. Like, you can be getting some value add, but I think there's got to be some chances taken.”
