Episode Summary

For International Women in Cyber Day, this special podcast episode features a discussion between cybersecurity professionals Naomi Yusupov, Daniella Reyhanian Ohana, and host Delilah Schwartz. The three women reflect on their career journeys, each having unexpectedly entered the male-dominated cyber industry without prior technical training, and how they each overcame imposter syndrome by proving their skills and excelling in their roles.

The women also discuss the complex challenges women face as they attempt to balance work in a demanding field with equally demanding family responsibilities. They explore the common experience of facing underestimation when embracing their femininity through appearance and style.

The episode highlights overcoming barriers through creativity, advocating respectfully for oneself, and cultivating an inclusive culture through mentorship, mutual support, and flexibility for working mothers in the workplace. By sharing experiences of proving competency despite obstacles and fostering camaraderie, Naomi, Daniella and Delilah hope to encourage more diversity and empowerment in their important work.
