Philippine Women in Cyber Alliance, SecurityMatters Magazine, and WISECRA to launch the “Top Women in Security – Philippines” on International Women’s Day 2020
Security has traditionally been a male-dominated business. As threats (including but not limited to cybersecurity, physical security, and privacy) increase in number, complexity, and themselves diversify, a more robust and diversity-informed response will be required to effectively counter these threats. Women increasingly stand to enhance our responses to security threats, and bring fresh leadership styles, varied experiences, unique perspectives, and emotional intelligence to security challenges.
Philippine Women in Cyber Alliance (PWCA), SecurityMatters Magazine, and the Women in Security & Resilience Alliance (WISECRA) are pleased to announce the launch of the “Top Women in Security – Philippines”. This new accolade has been developed to help recognize women who have been empowered in security across the Philippines who have made significant contributions to advance the security industry (e.g., cyber security/information security, physical security and privacy), and are shaping the path for future generations of professionals among other vital contributions.
Mel Migriño, Leader of the Philippine Women in Cyber Alliance (PWCA), Augustus Caesar Esmeralda, Editor-in-Chief of SecurityMatters Magazine, and Bonnie Butlin, International Coordinator of WISECRA will also co-lead the Judging for the Top Women in Security, along with a small panel of Judges drawn from across the Philippine security community. The Judges will be revealed once nominations open on International Women’s Day (March 8, 2020).
