In our very first interview, we’re proud to spotlight Vandana Verma Sehgal. Vandana is the Chair of the Board of Directors for the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) Foundation. The non-profit foundation works to improve application security, organizing projects, tools, documents, forums, and chapters all over the world. Vandana is also passionate about initiatives to bring more diversity to cybersecurity.

Vandana has also been active in bringing more diversity to infosec. She said that she was used to being the only woman; women weren’t usually offered the night shift for her security operations team. Sure, cybersecurity is a niche skill, but she said it’s also a very male-dominated culture. Vendana is passionate about changing that. She started InfosecGirls to create a safe place for girls to learn about cybersecurity, collaborating with colleges to help women gain the technical training and skills to join our field.

Be sure to check out her story as well as some resources she has provided:
