Sue Black Champions Women in Cybersecurity
June 2, 2019
June 2, 2019: One of the more compelling keynote speakers to appear at the upcoming Infosecurity Europe 2019 event in London, UK, is indubitably Professor Sue Black, until recently head of department of Computing Sciences at the University of Westminster. Now a full-time technology evangelist, she was awarded the Order of the British Empire for services to technology in 2016.
When just 20 years old, Black escaped from an abusive relationship and found herself a single parent of three children, in a small apartment in London’s Brixton district. From that difficult start, she attended a mathematics access course in the evenings, which led to a degree in Computing Studies in 1993. She eventually gained her doctorate in 2001 and became a lecturer.
Professor Black is taking part in Infosecurity Magazine‘s third annual Women in Cybersecurity networking event at Infosecurity Europe on Wednesday June 5, which will be celebrating the achievements of women in cybersecurity, debating diversity’s challenges and discussing career opportunities for women in the industry. Her keynote speech is titled “If I can do it, so can you.”
