Women in Cybersecurity



Shira Beck

UX Designer – ThreatQuotient

How long have you worked there?
2 1/2 Years

What aspects of your job bring you the most satisfaction?
I find satisfaction in several aspects of my job. I get to advocate for the user’s point of view, which is pretty awesome! I also get to solve complex problems through intuitive design. There’s something deeply fulfilling about taking a project from its inception and seeing it through to implementation. Knowing that my contributions positively impact how our customers interact with our product is incredibly rewarding.

What do you enjoy most about the company?
The Culture. It is such a warm, supportive environment where everyone genuinely wants the best for one another. This sense of mutual support and care is truly unique.

How did you get into cybersecurity?
If you had told me three years ago that I would be working in cybersecurity, I would not have believed you. It was totally by chance; an opportunity presented itself, and I took it.

What do you like most about cybersecurity?
What I find most captivating about cybersecurity is its dynamic nature. It’s a field that is constantly changing and evolving, presenting new challenges to tackle and solutions to explore.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #InspireInclusion. What does that mean to you?
I believe that in order to inspire change, we have to pave the way for others to follow. As women, we possess the ability to lead by example and illustrate what it means to live in a society where we are valued, respected, and empowered. We must champion not only our own rights but also advocate for the rights of our fellow women. With the birth of my daughter this past year, I am deeply invested in creating a world where she can strive for her best and have every opportunity available to her. Therefore, the theme #InspireInclusion holds a significant meaning to me. It signifies the importance of fostering a culture of inclusivity and diversity, not only for my daughter but for all women.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Breathe! No good decision was ever made while freaking out.
