Your weekly newsletter for black women in tech


Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to our Cyber Security of our weekly newsletter.

First I have to say thank you to all the women and men who reached out with resources to be shared in this IT Edition newsletter. Also, thank you to all the new subscribers I reached out to on Linkedin, a warm welcome to the fam and a start to my informal intro's. If you like this free newsletter please share with other black women in tech or black women that have an interest in joining the tech industry. 

Let's start here 👇🏾
What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from attacks. Cyber attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.

What is the job of a Cybersecurity specialist?
Cybersecurity specialist/analysts help prevent attacks through their expertise and knowledge of databases, networks, hardware, firewalls, and encryption.

Application Security Engineer ~$100,000 to $210,000
Penetration Tester ~$80,000 and $130,000
